To make the beef stew:
- Combine the coconut flour, salt and pepper in a medium sized bowl.
- Add the raw beef pieces and mix well to coat the meat thoroughly.
- Heat 2 tablespoons of the oil in a large, heavy bottomed sauce pan.
- Add the beef and cook over medium high heat to brown, stirring occasionally for about 5 minutes. Remove the meat from the pan.
- Add the other tablespoon of oil to the pan, then add the garlic, onion, celery and radishes.
- Saute, stirring occasionally, for about 5 minutes, or until softened and fragrant.
- Add the Worcestershire sauce and whisky to the pan and cook an additional 2 minutes.
- Add the cooked beef back to the pan, along with the water, dijon mustard, parsley, and thyme – then stir well. Cover and simmer for 1 hour over low heat.
- Remove the cover and whisk in the xanthan gum.
- Turn the heat up to medium, and simmer uncovered for 15 minutes to reduce.
To make the cheesy biscuit dough:
- Preheat the oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit.
- Place the butter in a medium-sized microwave safe bowl.
- Microwave on high, uncovered, for 30 seconds or until melted.
- Add the sweetener, almond flour, coconut flour, salt, garlic powder, baking powder, xanthan gum, egg, fresh thyme, almond milk and cheddar and mix well with a fork.
- Transfer the beef stew to an oven safe casserole or cast iron pan.
- Top with 8 scoops or balls of biscuit dough.
- Bake at 375 for 25 minutes – or until the tops are golden brown and have puffed up slightly.
- Remove from the oven and cool for 10 minutes before serving.
