- 2 Teaspoons Salt (or to taste)
- 1 Teaspoon Fresh Ground Pepper (or to taste)
- 1/2 Teaspoon Paprika (or to taste)
- 2 Bay Leaves
Both Crock Pot & Instant Pot Directions are Listed Below:
- Add the Stew Meat into the Crock Pot or Instant Pot.
- Sprinkle the Gluten Free Flour over the Stew Meat & toss with a fork until all pieces are coated evenly.
- Prep Onions, Garlic, Potatoes, Carrots, Celery & Tomatoes & Place everything into the Pot.
- Add in Seasonings to taste.
- Stir in Beef Stock, Wine and Olive Oil.
- CROCK POT INSTRUCTIONS: Place Cover on Crock Pot & Cook on High for 4 Hours, then an additional 2 Hours on Low.
- INSTANT POT INSTRUCTIONS: Secure Lid on Instant Pot and Press the ‘Meat / Stew’ Setting. If you don’t have a preset on your pressure cooker, then select 40 minutes on High Pressure. Allow the InstantPot to Natural Release once the cook time is up – Which takes another 1/2 hour or so. Otherwise, wait 15 minutes before releasing the pressure.
If the Stew is too thin after cooking, whisk together 1/2 Cup of the hot Stew Broth and 1/4 Cup of additional Gluten Free Flour and stir into to the Stew to thicken. Repeat if necessary.
Vegan Suggestions: Substitute the Meat for 3 Cups Rinsed & Soaked Dried White Beans. Use 1 Teaspoon less Salt (to avoid beans hardening off), and use Vegetable Broth in Place of Beef or Chicken Stock. Cook as normal, making sure Beans are fully cooked before serving.
