One of autumn and winter's most comforting meals, beef stew can be as simple or complex as you can imagine! From a slow cooker version made in the crockpot to Julia Child's famous Boeuf Bourguignon, beef stew comes in so many different varieties and variations, let your imagination run wild! Even better, you can make this on a weekend and freeze it in batches to defrost on a whim. Here are 5 of my favorite recipes, all gluten & dairy free, for this hearty comfort food to keep you warm and cozy until well after Christmas.
Tip: Add 1 Tbsp of cocoa powder to your next batch of stew or chili for an unbelievable flavor boost!
Note: Most of the recipes call for Worcestshire sauce -- not all brands are gluten free, but Lea & Perrins is!

Brown, bake, toss in veggies, bake some more - what could be simpler?!
