Crock Pot Beef with Pearl Onions and Leeks

IMG_1474.JPGCubes of beef chuck are perfect for stews and crock pot meals in general. Leeks, parsnips, and pearl onions compliment the meat well, and coconut milk adds some nice fat and creaminess. Chop everything up and cook on low for 8-12 hours, and enjoy a warm, comforting, hearty meal at the end of the day.

  • 2 leeks sliced
  • 10-20 pearl onions
  • 2-3 lbs beef chuck cubes
  • 5-6 mushrooms, halved
  • 1 can light coconut milk
  • Salt, pepper, a dash of allspice and orange peel, mustard seed
  • 2 cups shredded cabbage
  • 3 parsnips

  • Winter Crock Pot Bison and Root Vegetable Stew


    Here is an easy stew, perfect for a cold winter night. It’s not particularly thick, but chock full of tasty root vegetables, and chunks of bison. Bison is a great choice, and I love the Bison Stew Meat from US Wellness Meats. It’s nice and meaty, but doesn’t have a strong “beefy” flavor like beef sometimes does. You could easily substitute beef though.


    • 1 rutabaga
    • 1 carrot
    • 1 onion
    • 1 turnip
    • 2 small parsnips
    • 2 cups water
    • 1 pint chicken stock
    • 1 lb bison stew meat
    • 2 portabella mushroom caps
    • Allspice, salt, pepper, rosemary, thyme, bay leaf

    Chop all vegetables and add to the crock pot. Add the bison meat. Season and pour in the liquids. Cook on low for 10 hours.
