"An "Irish" stew using beef instead of lamb. To cut calories and fat, make a day ahead of time, refrigerate, and lift off solidified fat before reheating."
- 1 pound beef chuck, cut into 1-inch cubes
- 1 cup low-sodium beef broth
- 1 cup water
- 1 bay leaf
- 1 medium onion, peeled and sliced into rings
- 1 medium turnip, peeled and diced
- 1 large carrot, peeled and sliced
- 1 medium russet potato, peeled and diced
- 1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
- 2 tablespoons whole wheat flour
- 2 teaspoons marjoram
- 1 tablespoon low-sodium soy sauce
What You Will Need
No special items needed.
In a large saucepan, combine the beef, broth, water and bay leaf. Bring to a boil over medium-high heat. Reduce heat, cover, and simmer for 20 minutes.
Add the onions, turnips, carrots, potatoes and pepper. Simmer for 45 minutes.
If doing the overnight method, remove from heat, cool slightly and refrigerate overnight. To reheat, remove fat from top of stew.
Mix flour with some water to make a smooth paste. Add to the stew, along with the marjoram and stir over heat until the stew thickens and is heated through, about 12 minutes. Stir in the soy sauce and serve.
