When the weather gets cold, put these ingredients together in a slow cooker. Don’t add the gumbo file powder until the end of cooking. It thickens the stew and gives it a nice root beer-like flavor.

3 lbs. organic, grass-fed stew beef

1 lb. of a variety of fresh mushrooms. I used Black Trumpets, Chanterelles, Hedgehogs, and Yellow Foot Mushrooms here.

2 teaspoons ground black pepper

2 Tablespoons pastured butter

3 Tablespoons red curry paste

1/2 of a chopped red onion

3 garlic cloves

Real gumbo filet powder is ground sassafras leaves with nothing else mixed in.
