This is my favorite beef-based slow cooker meal. While they are all good, this one has the perfect mix of meat and sweet with a hint of heat from the chiles. I like to try to have one chunk of yam/sweet potato per chunk of meat. If you’re looking for a great option for stocking your bank account, I highly recommend this one.
A big thanks to “Belme the Butcher” for helping out with this one. She is a stellar mixer and knows how to plug in a slow cooker like no one else!

“It’s Not Gourmet, Sis!” – Beef Stew with Green Chiles and Yams
“Keep It Paleo!”
We start with 3 lbs of Beef which after cooking yields 2lbs, or 32oz. 1oz = 28.3G/block.
Our Carbohydrates are coming from all the different veggies thrown in here. The main source of our blocks come from our Onions and our Yam/Sweet Potatoes. Then the final clocks are made up with our celery, carrots, tomatoes and green chilis. Here is a breakdown of how the measurements work.
4 Cups of onions (340g) – 21G of Onion = 1 Block, therefore there are 16 blocks from Onions
2 Cups of Celery (600g) – 600g of Celery = 1 Block, so Celery is adding one block
2 cups of Carrots (375g) – 94g of Carrots = 1 Block, therefore there are 4 blocks from carrots
28oz of Crushed tomatoes (794g) – 225G of Tomatoes = 1 Block, so we get 3.5 blocks from Crushed tomatoes
8oz Green Chiles (227g) – 225g of Green Chiles = 1 block
700g Yam/Sweet Potato – 115g of Sweet Potato = 1 block, therefore we get 6 blocks from Sweet Potato.
We have 3.5 TBS of Olive Oil in this recipe. 3.5 TBS = 10.5 TSP. There are 3 blocks per TSP resulting in 31.5 Blocks of Fat
