Ingredients

  • 3 lbs boneless eye of the round steak
  • 1/2 cup coconut flour
  • 2 tablespoons tapioca starch*
  • 1 tablespoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 cup onion diced
  • 2 tablespoons coconut oil for browning steaks

For Mushroom Sauce:

  • 2 cups beef stock
  • 8 ounces white mushrooms
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 cans full-fat coconut milk chilled
  • 2 tablespoons tapioca starch*

Instructions

  • Put two tablespoons coconut oil in a skillet and turn on to medium heat.
  • In a small bowl, combine the coconut flour, tapioca starch, salt and garlic powder. Mix well.
  • Dredge the steaks in the flour mixture and place them in a hot skillet. Allow them to brown on the first side, 1-2 minutes, then flip the steaks and allow them to brown for 2 minutes on the other side.
  • Place the browned steaks in a slow cooker. Top with diced onions.
  • Pour the beef stock, mushrooms, pepper and salt in a blender. Blend for 30 seconds on medium speed, or until the mushrooms are chopped to the size you'd like.
  • Pour the mushroom sauce over the steaks.
  • Cook on high for 5-6 hours or low for 7-9 hours until the steaks are tender.
  • minutes before serving, open the chilled cans of coconut milk and scoop out the hardened cream into a bowl. Reserve the clear coconut water for another use.**
  • Mix the coconut cream with 2 tablespoons tapioca starch. Add this to the slow cooker and allow the coconut cream to "melt" in.
  • Allow the coconut cream to heat through. Mix gently just before serving.

Notes

If you don't care about this being gluten free/paleo, you can use cornstarch and all-purpose flour in place of the tapioca starch and coconut flour. *This clear coconut water is good in smoothies.
