Recipe Ingredients for Healthy Beef Stew

8 ounces stew beef
3 T canola oil
2 leeks
3 g cloves garlic
1 lb new potatoes
3 large carrots
1 large onion
12 ounces sliced mushrooms
4 g dried porcini mushrooms
2 T flour
1/2 cup dry red wine
3 cups beef broth
1/4 tsp Salt
1/4 tsp black pepper
1 T dried thyme
1 tsp bay leaves

Recipe Directions for Healthy Beef Stew

  1. Heat oil in your largest saucepan or a Dutch oven over medium high heat. When oil begins to sizzle, add beef and cook, stirring, until beef begins to brown. Remove with a slotted spoon to a plate or bowl and keep nearby.

  2. Add leeks and garlic to pot, stirring for 1-2 minutes until they begin to soften. Stir in remaining vegetables (potatoes through porcini mushrooms) and cook, stirring occasionally, until all the vegetables begin to heat up and start to cook, about 3-4 minutes.

  3. Sprinkle flour over the veggies, stir well, and cook for another 2 minutes.

  4. Return beef to the pot.

  5. Add liquids (mushroom soaking liquid, wine and stock/broth), stirring well.

  6. Cover the pot and bring the mixture to a low boil.

  7. Remove cover, reduce heat to medium and add thyme, salt, pepper and the bay leaves.

  8. Cook for another 30 minutes or until carrots and potatoes are your desired level of tenderness by testing with the point of a knife.

  9. Discard the bay leaves before serving.
