Curry Beef (or Lamb) Stew

      Curry Beef (or lamb) Stew
      2 cups beef broth
      1 pound stew meat - grass-fed beef or lamb shank
      2 cups full fat, organic coconut milk
      2 purple onions, peeled and diced
      4 cloves garlic, peeled and minced
      4 carrots, peeled and sliced into half inch pieces
      1 cinnamon stick
      2 Tbsp hot curry powder
      2 to 4 tbsp ground cumin seed
      1 medium sized sweet potato, peeled and cut into bite size chunks
      2 golden beets, peeled and cut into chunks
      2 purple potatoes, washed and cut into chunks
      1 delicata squash, seeded and cut into chunks (leave the skin on)
      2 cups cooked garbanzo or gigande beans
      Sea Salt to taste
      Brown your stew meat over medium heat in a small amount of coconut oil. The slower the better for tenderness. In a soup pot over medium heat soften the onions, garlic and carrots in a small amount of the broth about 1/4 to 1/2 cup. Add in the coconut milk and spices, stir and cook for a few minutes without boiling. Slowly stir in the rest of the stock to blend - then add the potatoes, beets and squash and cook until all vegetables are soft. After about 30 minutes - add in the beans and flavor with sea salt.
