If you’re following the GAPS diet, you need a lot of GAPS intro soup recipes. My GAPS diet beef soup recipe is definitely one you’ll want to know how to make. Check out my GAPS chicken chicken soup recipe for intro here and my blended carrot soup recipe here

GAPS recipes often need to be fast and easy. Those first stages of GAPS intro are a big adjustment for many people. I love this recipe because it couldn’t be easier to make, and it definitely checks all the boxes for nourishment and flavor.

This soup also works as a paleo beef stew recipe. By tweaking what vegetables you use, it can also work great for anyone needing keto GAPS recipes.

Another thing I love about this GAPS diet beef soup recipe is that it is truly a one dish meal. You have your meat, vegetables, healthy fat, and meat stock all in one dish. 

All you have to do is add some probiotic food, and enjoy. So easy!

  1. Hi Marisa,
    I have started preparing all the things i needed to start my 3 year old, and my 11months old baby, And me on the gaps diet. But already after breakfast and lunch, they started having a rash on their faces and i wonder if it is a die off reaction or since you have an imbalance in the gut, (in my situation, it is likely to be an overgrowth of candida, since they hve diaperrash coming and going), its making your body acidic because of all the meat and fat? Im scared to be doing something wrong!

    • Good for you to do this! Yes, those are common detox reactions. I’m happy to help out further in an email or Instagram message!

  2. This is probably a silly question but I have a very large family and don’ have a Dutch oven big enough to make this for all of us. Can I do it on the stove in my 12 or 22 quart stock pot? Any suggestions on time/temperature? Am I just looking for a simmer to replicate the 300 degree oven? Thanks in advance!

    • Great question! Yes, you can absolutely do it on the stove instead. I usually opt for that in the hot summer months 🙂 Bring it to a boil first, and then lower the temp to a simmer 🙂
