Hunter Stew

Hey guys, this is something I used to make when I was younger and staying with my grandfather. There was always a surplus of meat, veggies and oddly, berries. Did you know many berries actually taste really nice with red meat? Try it, it’s wonderful!

You will need:

  • 2lbs cubed beef
  • 2handfuls fresh blueberries
  • 2C baby carrots, sliced in half lengthwise
  • Butter
  • Coconut oil for frying
  • Salt/pepper/oregano/garlic powder
  • 1 large onion, sliced in semicircles
  • Optional: Red wine and Worcestershire sauce

Step one:

Brown the beef in coconut oil, and put on a medium simmer with the onions while that all softens up. Once that’s done…

Step two:

Throw in the seasoning. Season to taste, I personally use a LOT of garlic. The carrots can go in too. Add half a cup of red wine, and a splash of Worcestershire sauce. Add enough water so the meat is mostly covered.

Let this all stew for about 30mins on a medium heat.

Step three:

Add the berries in the last ten minutes, with a teaspoon of butter to coat.

Step four:

When the carrots are fork tender…serve, and nom that deliciousness!

Enjoy your drool-worthy pile of noms.

    I made this last night for dinner and it was so quick and easy. It’s great for a weeknight meal because there is not a lot of prep time and not a ton of ingredients. My husband loved it and went back for thirds!

    This was so perfect! Blueberries were such a nice touch. Added siracha, lime juice, mushrooms, bell peppers, and minced garlic to give it some muscle.

    • nionvox

      Sounds delicious! It’s really just a base to start from, and I love hearing people’s customizations.

  • DB

    Perfect late summer cool night dish with fresh local berries and carrots. Delish and quick!

    • nionvox

      If you live in Canada/US, blueberries are in season too!

  • Nichole

    Love this! I get get everything here in Germany and it still tastes like something from the United States 🙂 (usually I have to substitute and it doesn’t taste authentic)

  • As I’m sure that plenty of people have already mentioned, I would have never thought to put blueberries in something like this. So good!! Thanks for your creativity! I’m putting blueberries in everything now. 😉

    • nionvox

      Have fun! When they’re in season you almost can’t use enough to get rid of them all, I find.

  • Robyn

    Would this work as a crock pot meal? Any suggestions on making it work that way?

    • nionvox

      Good question, and to be honest, I’ve never tried it that way! I suppose you could do, but put the blueberries in maybe half an hour before it’s done, so it doesn’t overpower everything else.

    • Mandi

      I tried this in the crock pot last night. I just put all of the ingredients in the crock pot and added water to fill over the meat. I cooked on low for 8 hours. It was awesome! I just added extra seasoning to give the broth some flavor. The meat was so tender and just fell apart.

      • Mandi

        Oh I did wait to put the blueberries in until the final 30 minutes.

      • nionvox

        Ok, now i’m definitely gonna try this. 😀 What seasoning did you use?

  • Janet

    Are you able to freeze this? Just looking for recipes which i could freeze and reheat to eat. Thanks 🙂

    • nionvox

      I’ve frozen it fine, just make sure the meat is submerged in liquid or it’ll get freezer burnt.

    Made this and was pretty disappointed. There was no real flavor. Perhaps I used too much water?

    • nionvox

      You might use a lot less seasoning than I do.

    This was excellent! I did every thing you said except I left out the butter as I wasn’t sure for this Paleo diet. It still tasted really good:)

    • Nionvox

      Glad to hear it! Butter is one of those things that varies from person to person. I’ve also used ghee or coconut oil 🙂

  • Greg

    I would never have thought in one million years that this would taste good with blueberries in it. My organization was in a cooking contest and we did all paleo meals. This was an absolute homerun way out of the park. Everyone said ewww at first and I challenged them to try it. Almost to a person everyone came back for more and it was the favorite for many in the crowd. Thanks!!

    • nionvox

      I’m glad it was a hit! It is a unique one for some, but it’s always worth trying something new. 🙂

  • CelticViking

    Wow what a fantastic recipe..sounds odd at first but totally works..I used bone broth instead of water and added a half can of sweet peas…amazing..very well done!! 5 stars!

  • Lisa Kljaich

    Wonderful, we used frozen Alaskan wild blueberries. This will join our winter foods line-up.
