  • 1/2 cup chopped onion
  • 1/3 cup finely chopped celery 
  • 1 clove garlic
  • 1 pound stew beef, or chuck roast cut into 1 inch cubes

  • 1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons tomato paste
  • 1 tablespoon brown mustard 
  • 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce

  • 1 teaspoon dried thyme leaves
  • 1/2 teaspoon xanthan gum

  1. Heat the bacon fat in a large skillet over medium heat.  
  2. Add the mushrooms and cook for 3 – 5 minutes, or until golden brown.

  4. Add the onion, celery and garlic, and cook for about 3 minutes, or until fragrant and the onions are translucent.  
  5. Spoon the vegetables into the bowl the mushrooms.  
  6. Season the beef with salt and pepper.  
  7. Add the beef to the hot bacon fat and sear over high heat for 3 – 5 minutes, or until browned.
