Ingredients

  • 1 cup white potato
  • 2 cups onion
  • 3 garlic cloves
  • 2 cups carrots
  • 2 pounds lean beef stew meat
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 cup sliced shitake mushrooms
  • 1/2 tablespoon dried thyme
  • 1 cup dry red wine
  • 1/3 cup all-purpose white flour
  • 3/4 teaspoon Mrs. Dash® Original herb seasoning blend
  • 4 cups low-sodium beef broth
  • 1 bay leaf
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper

Preparation

  1. Peel potato and cut into small cubes. Soak or double-boil to reduce potassium if you are on a low potassium diet. (see helpful hints) 
  2. Chop onion and mince garlic cloves. Slice carrots. Cut beef into bite-sized pieces.
  3. In a large Dutch oven heat 2 teaspoons olive oil over medium-high heat.
  4. Add onion and cook until tender; add mushrooms and thyme; stir and cook for 5 minutes. Add garlic and sauté 1 minute.
  5. Add red wine to mixture and stir.
  6. Coat beef in flour. In a large frying pan heat 2 teaspoons oil over medium heat. Add half of beef mixture and sprinkle with 1/8 teaspoon Mrs. Dash® seasoning blend. Cook until browned on all sides. Repeat with remaining 2 teaspoons oil, beef mixture and 1/8 teaspoon Mrs. Dash seasoning blend.
  7. Add browned beef to mushroom mixture.
  8. Add broth and bay leaf to mixture. Bring to a boil.
  9. Cover, reduce heat to medium-low and simmer for 1 hour or until beef is tender.
  10. Drain potatoes. Stir potatoes and carrot into pot with beef. Simmer uncovered for 1 hour, stirring occasionally as sauce thickens.
  11. Stir in remaining 1/2 teaspoon Mrs. Dash and black pepper. Discard bay leaf and serve.

Helpful hints

  • Potatoes are very high in potassium but you can remove part of the potassium by using one of these methods:
    • Double cook method: Peel and dice potatoes. Place in a large pot of water and bring to a boil. Drain the water and add fresh water to the pot. Bring to a boil, cook for 10 minutes then drain and set aside.
    • Leaching method:  Peel and dice potatoes. Place in a large pot of warm tap water and soak for 2 to 4 hours. Drain and set aside.
  • Skip step # 1 if you are not on a low potassium diet.
  • Divide leftover stew into 1 cup portions and freeze for a quick meal later.
  • Serve with crusty rolls and berries for dessert.
