  • 1 teaspoon parsley
  • 1 teaspoon minced garlic
  • 2 teaspoons salt
  • ½ teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 2 cups radish ( or turnip) cubed
  • 1 small carrot cut into small pieces
  • 4 stalks celery cut into half slices
  • 1 teaspoon xanthan gum


  • Cook beef in olive oil. Add beef broth, water and seasonings. Bring to boil, then reduce heat, cover and simmer 1 hour
  • Stir in vegetables then sprinkle in xanthan gum, cover and simmer 1 hour more.



For a thicker stew, sprinkle in more xanthan gum or guar gum. A better option may even be glucomannan powder. Just be careful not to add too much or it will be almost like gelatin.
