Helpful hints

  • Look for reduced sodium broth containing 500 milligrams sodium or less per 1 cup serving. Avoid low sodium broths and bouillons containing potassium chloride—it’s very high in potassium.
  • Braised means to cook covered in a small amount of liquid, usually after browning the meat to help develop color and flavor.
  • For CKD non-dialysis: This higher protein recipe may be appropriate for your diet if the portion size is adjusted to reduce protein content. Adjustments should be based on your individual protein prescription. Check with your dietitian if you are unsure.

I made this for my very picky husband. He loved it. The meat is very tender and the veggis very tasty. I added bell pepper,mushrooms and Mrs. Dash.

This was very good as written but I made some changes. Put some Mrs. Dash in the flour for taste. Eliminated beef broth, used one up of no sodium chicken broth instead, even with only cup it was watery so it got fixed with some cornstarch mixed right in the pot. Cooked it in crockpot and eliminated sautéing the veggies...just dumped them in the pot for 6 hrs on low...was so tender! Served over some rice it's a great meal. We also steamed broccoli and cauliflower to top it off.

Made this recipe (minus the celery) and it was delicious. Even used the crockpot after braising the meat instead of putting it in the oven.

I made this for my mom and the entire family loved it. Although it takes a while to cook, the recipe is worth it. The meat is super tender and still flavorful. My mom has problems digesting with a sensitive stomach and acid reflux but because the meat is very tender, she was able to keep the food down without any trouble. Highly recommend.

I like to make my own chicken, vegetable, and beef broths and then either freeze or can them. That way I know how much sodium and other flavoings are added and it really isn't hard to do.

do you ever write about patiens in stage 3 and 4 to help them stay put and delay dropping to a lower stage? Moderator comment: Yes, we are working on a series of articles about diet and stages of kidney disease. The stage 3 article will be featured in October 2011.

excellent...I did not have beef broth so used water instead; also added some paprika and Mrs. Dash to the flour. After browning ribs, added a little wine to the pan to deglaze. Put ribs and vegetables in crockpot for 4-5 hours on low. Served with egg noodles. Very flavorful.
