Heat the cooking fat in a large heavy-bottom pot on medium-high heat.
When the fat has melted and the pan is hot, brown stew meat for 5-7 minutes, stirring once to brown evenly.
Remove to a plate, and set aside. It’s okay to batch-cook meat in a smaller pot/pan.
Turn heat down to medium and add onions. Cook for 7 minutes or until translucent.
Add garlic and ginger, and cook for a couple of minutes while stirring until fragrant.
Add bone broth, water, vinegar, 1 tsp salt, and browned meat to the pot.
Bring to a boil, cover, and turn down to a bare simmer. Cook for 30 minutes. (Tip: Check that stew is cooking at very low simmer and not boiling; this ensures meat stays tender.)
Add parsnips, carrots, turmeric, and cinnamon to the pot. Cook at a bare simmer for 45 minutes or until the veggies are just tender.
Add coconut milk and kale to the pot. Continue at a bare simmer for 10 minutes, stirring a couple of times as the kale cooks in.
Turn off heat, then stir in half of the cilantro and all the lime juice; salt to taste.
Serve warm, garnished with the remaining cilantro.</span-p>

Cook It Up:
An Upwork

A Foreword from the
Kitchen of Hayden Brown,
Upwork CEO

I deeply treasure that time around the table with my kids and loved ones. In our household, our kitchen table is a gathering place to share a meal, enjoy each other’s company, reflect on the day and laugh together.

With ‘Cook It Up,’ our Upwork Family Belonging Community has assembled a wonderful collection of recipes that celebrate the rich diversity of cultures we represent at Upwork. I truly enjoyed the personal memories that connect these dishes to the team members who shared them. This is a fun, approachable and sometimes touching look behind the “work curtain” that’s helped me — and I hope will help you — get to know our team even better.

I invite you to take a moment to browse the stories and recipes when you are looking for inspiration, a new way to connect with your colleagues, or just want to try something new. Most of all, I invite you to participate in the celebration of food, family, and life found here in Cook It Up.
