This THM Beef Stew recipe is perfect for those cold winter days. Put everything in a dutch oven and let it simmer for a few hours, the house will smell great and you will be full and warm after dinner.
With the new year, I have decided to work harder on sharing more technique posts and how-tos here. I have decided to focus on one main cooking technique each month, and sharing a guide on how to properly do it, what to use it on, and general tips about it. Along with at least one recipe using the technique with a video for extra guidance.
This month I am sharing the method of Stewing with you. Earlier this week I shared A Guide to Beef Stew, full of great tips on how to make a great stew. Today I am here to share with you a great stew recipe. It can be an S or Crossover depending on the ingredients that you use if you follow the Trim Healthy Mama plan. And if you don’t then don’t worry about what veggies you use and make this fit your families liking.
Making stew really is not that difficult as you can see by checking out my Guide to Beef Stew. You need stew meat, wine, a little oil, beef broth, onion, potatoes, and carrots.
To keep this recipe in a S category use all non-starchy veggies, radishes instead of potatoes, onions, limit the carrots and turnips, these are all good options. While white potatoes are not typically on plan they are ok occasionally if you are close to goal weight or maintaining. I used just a few small golden potatoes and cut them in half just to have a traditional style beef stew.
Now it seems like I used quite a bit of wine, and it was a little more then I was thinking, but it turned out perfect and gave the meat a great flavor.
Watch how I made this beef stew.
