This low carb recipe is an adaptation of a Caribbean pepper pot stew with aromatic spices and a rich coconut infused broth. This is a great option for batch cooking as portions can be divided and frozen for future meals. Perfect served with cauliflower rice or a portion of green beans.


  • beef shin (500g diced)
  • riced cauliflower (4 cups)
  • baby spinach (4 cups)
  • beef stock (2 1/2 cups)
  • coconut oil (2 tbsp)
  • fresh thyme (2 tsp)
  • coconut milk (1 1/4 cups)
  • red onion (1 small thinly sliced)
  • garlic (1 clove thinly sliced)
  • fresh ginger (1 inch piece grated)
  • all spice (1 tsp)
  • smoked paprika (1 tsp)
  • tomato puree (1 tbsp)
  • cayenne pepper (1 tsp)
  • cinnamon (1/2 tsp)
  • red chili pepper (1/4 finely sliced)
  • sea salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste (pinch)


Heat a tablespoon of coconut oil in a large pan or casserole dish over a medium heat.

Add the diced beef and cook until browned all over. Remove from the pan with a slotted spoon and set aside.

Add the onion, garlic, ginger and chili to the pan and cook gently, sweating until tender.

Add the tomato pur�e, allspice, paprika, cayenne pepper, cinnamon and thyme. Stir together well to combine and cook gently for a minute until fragrant.

Add the beef stock and bring to a boil, stirring well.

Return the beef and reduce to a gentle simmer for 30 minutes, uncovered.

After 30 minutes, add 1 cup of coconut milk to the pan and stir well. Continue to simmer for a further 20 minutes until you have a thickened sauce.

Just before the stew finishes cooking, melt the remaining coconut oil in a large pan over a low/medium heat.

Add the cauliflower rice and season to taste. Cook the rice for 2-3 minutes until hot through.

Add the remaining coconut milk and simmer until the liquid has reduced.

Before serving, add the spinach to the stew and stir through until just wilted.

Serve the stew with a portion of rice.
