Cinnamon sweet potato & sage beef stew

This delicious and hearty beef stew only takes a few minutes to put together, then you can leave it simmering in your oven or crock pot until you’re ready to eat.  The slow braise breaks down the muscle fibres in the beef, so it will be falling apart tender, and loaded with flavour.


  • 2 lbs grassfed stewing beef — cut into 1 inch cubes 
  • 2 medium sweet potatoes — cubed
  • 2 large carrots — chopped
  • 1 large onion — chopped 
  • 2-4 cups beef bone broth 
  • large handful fresh sage
  • 1 bulb garlic — chopped 
  • 2 tbsp oil 
  • 1/8 tsp cinnamon 
  • 1/2 tsp sea salt
