Irish stew is a traditional Irish dish that is filling, flavorful, and made with the most readily available ingredients. So when I came up with this Paleo Irish Beef Stew, I did just that.

Homemade Crockpot Paleo Irish Beef Stew is Paleo AND easy to make. Warm up this St. Patrick’s Day with a warm, hearty meal.

Traditionally the Irish made this dish with lamb, potatoes, and onions. Each one was easy to harvest and kept well for months at a time – making these ingredients readily available for a hearty stew after a long day’s work.

Just like other traditional dishes we found ways to modify them based on what is available and our sophisticated plates (or lack thereof).

I’m a big fan of turning our traditional comfort foods into non-traditional healthy Paleo alternatives like this Crockpot Paleo Irish Beef Stew.

The Making of Paleo Irish Beef Stew

As much as I love a tasty lamb dish, this beef stew does not include its traditional main ingredient. Lamb is expensive when purchased in store, and I wanted to make this dish something that was budget-friendly and delicious enough for your picky mother-in-law to eat.

So I went with the next best thing, beef.

Next, I wanted to make a hearty sew with lower glycemic and budget-friendly root vegetables that can be found all year round. So, I ditched the white potatoes and threw in some parsnips and carrots from our garden.

Carrots have a glycemic load of six making these a low-GL food. A low-GL means that, unless you honestly are going to eat a pound and a half at a time, carrots don’t have a significant impact on blood glucose levels.

Parsnips have a low glycemic load of four. While parsnips are a root vegetable (a very starchy vegetable), they offer many essential nutrients. The carbohydrate content of parsnips isn’t high, so it won’t give you a significant glycemic response.
