This artisan beef kale bean stew is the kind of meal that you might get if you can go ‘back to the future’, walk into a diner, sit on the red vinyl covered stool, and order up from the blue plate special. Yep, it’s a comfort food to the nth degree. But, the thing about it is that it’s very healthy. Good carbs in the beans, and a lean tender cut of beef along with the super food, kale. So, this is an updated trendy hip artisan beef kale bean stew!
It’s important to use a tender cut of beef for this recipe. Why? Well, you’re not going to be cooking it that long, so if you use something like chuck roast, you’re going to be really disappointed. Chuck roast has to cook slow and low and for a long time in order to get tender. If you use a New York strip or ribeye cut, then you’re going to fall in love with this easy quick, relatively speaking for a rich deep stew, recipe!
What makes this stew even more luscious is the combination of spices. Oh, yes, you’re going to get hints of the smokey paprika, the flavors of the Italian seasoning, and then the sweet paprika tinges. The broth, slightly creamy yet brothy, is perfect for serving both in bowls or a deep dinner plate. Have plenty of good artisan bread for sopping up the juices and cleaning that bowl or plate. This artisan beef kale bean stew will be your fave when you pull into the 1950s diner!
