A thick, hearty stew for those cold winter days. Easily made in either crock pot , pressure cooker or saucepan, though the beef will be more tender with the first two. I use pearl barley (thus, the name), but this site didn't have a calorie count for it; arborio rice or orzo are equivalent, according to a site about barley.

Recipe Ingredients for Beef Stew

1 pound lean beef, cut for stewing
1 cup celery, diced
1 large onion, diced
8 ounces white mushrooms or crimini mushrooms, sliced
10 ounce green beans, no salt added
10 ounce diced tomatoes, no salt added
4 ounce tomato sauce, no salt added
2 medium russet potatoes, peeled and cubed or red or yukon potatoes quartered
2 medium carrots, cut to 1/4" thick slices,
1/2 tsp black pepper
2 tsp garlic powder or one garlic clove, crushed
1 tsp onion powder
1 cup frozen corn or 1 (10-ounce) can corn, no salt added
1 tsp basil
1 cup lentils
1 cup arborio rice or pearl barley or orzo

Recipe Directions for Beef Stew

  1. 1. Dredge cubed stew beef in flour and sear in non-stick skillet or with minimal amount of olive oil.

  2. 2. Place browned meat in crock pot, saucepan, or pressure cooker.

  3. 3. Place celery, onion and mushrooms in skilled with about 1/4-1/2 c. water to loosen the meat drippings. (If using crushed garlic clove, add it now as well.) Heat until celery and onion become slightly translucent.

  4. 4. Transfer all (including liquid) to stew pot along with black pepper, garlic powder and onion powder.

  5. 5. Add potatoes, carrots, green beans, tomatoes and tomato sauce to pot.

  6. 6. Either boil the lentils and barley/orzo/arborio rice separately in saucepan or microwave and add them to the pot at this stage, OR you can add them to the pot in about 30 minutes, bring the pot to boil, reduce heat to simmer about 60 minutes (all day, if crock pot).

  7. 7. Add corn last, about 30 minutes before serving if frozen or about 15 minutes before serving if thawed or canned.
