Coffee and Wine Beef Stew

Keto Recipes > Dinner

A delicious, rich, and slightly unique take on beef stew. Not so many people have heard of using coffee with beef in a stew, but trust me when I say this – you need to try it! The deep flavors that it produces is fantastic, almost similar to fish sauce that I add in other stews or chili’s of mine.

When you’re cooking the beef, it’s imperative that you don’t overcrowd the pan. You want nice caramelized browns on the cubes of beef – adding more flavor as they cook down with the rest of the ingredients. For red wine, I normally choose a Merlot. Anything that’s under $12 but above $5 works best for me. Not too expensive, but not too cheap. Cooking with wine can add great depths of flavors – and even unique flavor combinations you might have not tasted before.

You might call me lazy on this one (and I know sometimes I am), but I bought my mushrooms pre-sliced. The measurement of grams wasn’t taken, but if you slice your own mushrooms, it was just over 1 1/2 cup that I added to the entire recipe. The mushrooms help soak up some of the juices, and also add an essence of savory that I really enjoyed. You can garnish with a sprinkling of oregano and turmeric, but it’s not required.

12. If you want to, you can let this simmer without a lid for 30 minutes after the 3 hour mark. This will help reduce the liquids if you want a thicker sauce.
