Low Carb Beef Stew
You’re search stop here, this is the BEST low carb beef stew! This soup has to be one of the best soups I’ve ever tasted, with tender chunks of beef that you can cut with a spoon, delicious vegetables and decadent sauce. The Worcestershire and paprika add an amazing bit of flavor to the soup that makes it an iconic beef soup.
Apart from being scrumptious, it’s a one pot meal that can feed the whole family. You can even make it a day ahead – actually, it tastes better the longer it sits.
Yes, this recipe is simple but it takes some time, non active time. However, I promise its worth the wait. You’ll start off by browning the meat to develop texture and flavor. Then emerge the meat in beef broth and spices. Finally, near the end, you add the chopped vegetables so they tenderize, color and absorb flavor.

I tried this recipe and it worked out great. Not being experienced at cooking I did worry about the overpowering garlic taste early on, in fact I was going to bin it and start again but I waited and it turned out perfect.
I also tried some low carb dumplings, not bad but not great, I’ll keep searching for a good low alternative as I love dumplings with stew.
Great site by the way, I look forward to trying more of your recipes.
I made this last night and brought it to work for lunch today. This soup is delicious! Even if you weren’t concerned about carbohydrates, this soup would still be amazing. I wanted to bulk up the soup a bit, so I added some chopped raw cauliflower in with the other veggies. I didn’t have paprika on hand, either, but some chili powder, a dash of cumin, and a few red pepper flakes really rounded out the soup nicely.
This recipe will definitely be in rotation at my home going forward.

Try tossing in a pound of radishes! Cooked radishes resemble little red potatoes and really add a lot to a stew/soup of this nature.
I put whipping cream in pursuit was really good, thanks for the recipe!
