Paleo Beef Stew

This paleo stew recipe takes ordinary ingredients like beef, carrots, onions and tomatoes and makes them into a healthy, hearty stew. Red wine, dried oregano and basil give the dish a beautiful flavor. Feel free to increase the flavor with a couple of bay leaves and some celery salt. Other vegetables can be added as well, including mushrooms, peppers, green beans, peas, spinach, or leeks. Try sprinkling the paleo stew with fresh chopped parsley right before serving.
