2 lbs stewing beef
1 tablespoon sweet smoked paprika
1 teaspoon dried oregano
1 teaspoon dried thyme
1/2 teaspoon sea salt
2 teaspoons extra-virgin olive oil
3 garlic cloves, minced
2 onions, thinly sliced
2 celery ribs, finely chopped
2 cups beef broth
2 sweet potatoes, peeled and cut into chunks
1 orange

Please beef in bowl and coat with dried spices and salt.

Heat oil in Dutch oven; add garlic, onion, and celery. Cook over medium heat until softened.

Stir in beef and brown. Add half the stock, cover and let simmer for 2 hours, stirring occasionally. Cut potatoes into big chunks. Using a vegetable peeler, skin 3 thick strips of peel from orange. Cut remaining peel from orange and discard. Slice orange cross-wise into thick pieces, then cut into quarters.

When beef has simmered for 2 hours, stir in sweet potatoes, orange peel, and remaining broth. Bring to a boil and reduce heat. Cover and simmer, stirring occasionally, until meat and potatoes are tender, about 30 to 45 more minutes. Stir in orange pieces. Serves 6.

Kid Tested: I can get my kids to eat all their vegetables (even the ones they don’t like) with this recipe. They are all delicious!

I mix several vegetables when making a batch, such as:

– 5 carrots, 1 parsnip, 1 onion, 1 celery stalk;
– 4 potatoes, 2 turnip, 1 onion 1 celery stalk, 1 parsnip;
– 1 broccoli head, 1 red pepper, 1 onion, 1 celery stalk, 1 parsnip.

– Roast any root vegetable – potato; turnip; sweet potato; carrot; beet; parsnip or celery root for 60 minutes at 350F.
– Roast broccoli; cauliflower; or red pepper for 30 minutes at 350F.

Toss vegetable(s) and onion with olive oil, and place in a roasting pan. Roast root vegetables for 60 minutes, and other vegetables for 30 minutes, at 350F, until well caramelized. Puree with an immersion blender, or in small batches in a blender. Pour some broth in to the roasting pan to remove all the baked on bits and add the extra flavour to your soup.

Use this recipe, technique, and spices for main vegetable from this recipe: Cream of Vegetable Soup

Reheat just prior to serving.
