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.
  • If you are not on a potassium restricted diet you can skip the above step.

Could you replace the potatoes with noodles? If so, what would change on the nutrient counts. Dietitian comment: Yes you can substitute 1 cup pasta for the potatoes to reduce potassium to 482 mg per serving. Phosphorus is slightly lower and carbohydrate is about the same.

Apple Cider Beef Stew

I made this for my family with a couple of small changes. I only used 1 cup of potatoes and added 1/2 a pkg of mushrooms (about 1 cup), quartered. Also, instead of buying pre-cubed stew meat, I bought a chuck roast and cut it up myself. The meat was real tender and the texture was awesome, but my wife and I though it was too sweet and didn't think it tasted like a beef stew at all. Interestingly, my father-in-law who hates almost everything I make, loved it!

You could lower the potassium content by following one of the reduction methods listed in the recipe. The high protein content is what makes it not acceptable for non-dialysis. You could reduce the beef to decrease the protein.

Would this recipe be acceptable for non-dialysis if you were to leave out the potatoes and reduce everything?
