|Unofficial step 1... make plenty of bone broth ahead of time|
First, brown the stew meat in ghee (good thing I've properly stocked my pantry), toss in some ginger and turmeric and simmer for about an hour.
Next, get your veggies ready. I was almost going to toss in some mushrooms but I decided to check the Bulletproof Diet book first. According to the book, mushrooms are "kryptonite" (for various reasons)...so I left them out, even though I am doubtful of the claim. I also like to add an onion occasionally.
Veggies go in at different stages so they don't get over cooked.
|Final step...coconut milk|

The actual Bulletproof recipe can be found on page 265 of "The Bulletproof Diet" by Dave Asprey. The recipe below is how I tweak it for my family:
1-2 lbs. stew meat (Beef or lamb)
3 tablespoons ghee (I don't always use this, sometimes I'll brown the meat in avocado oil)
1/2 inch fresh ginger (or a tad more if you are like me)
1 tablespoon ground turmeric (I use about 2 fingers of fresh turmeric)
3 cups bone broth
2-3 sweet potatoes
1 large zucchini or 2-3 smaller ones
1 large onion (if you aren't following a strict "Bulletproof" diet)
1 can of unsweetened coconut milk (I get the light coconut milk from Trader Joe's)
