Ingredients

    3 lbs chuck beef, cubed
    1 can coconut milk
    1 can pureed sweet potato
    6-8 cups homemade chicken stock (or water)
    1 large yellow onion
    3 cloves garic
    1 tsp extra virgin olive oil
    2 large celery stalks
    1 knuckle fresh turmeric, chopped (or a tsp. ground)
    1 jalapeno, chopped
    Salt and pepper to taste

Directions

In a large stock pot, heat the olive oil over medium heat. Add the onion, garlic, turmeric, jalapeno, pinch salt, and celery. Saute briefly and add the chuck beef. Saute mixture until beef is golden brown.

Add the coconut milk, stock, and pureed sweet potato. Satl and pepper to taste. Cover the pot and keep over a low-medium heat for at least one hour.

This is a great "crock-pot" type of stew. The longer you have, the better! You can uncover during the last leg to make it thicker and serve over brown rice. Or you can add your favorite vegetables to finish it off.

Enjoy!
