There is a probability that the coconut milk is rising a few eyebrows. This is what brings the gravy together and brings the flavors to a medium level that is acceptable to a wide range of consumers of the Paleo Beef Recipes. If you strictly follow paleo, then by now you know that it is always a good idea to have some beef stock hanging around as it comes in handy in many of the paleo recipes.
