photo 3-1

Stew is the perfect comforting winter meal and it can easily be made healthy by packing in the veggies!

Ingredients: Yields about 8 (1 & 1/2c.) servings

  • 1 ribeye steak (I like to use a flavorful cut of meat and just cut off all the fat I can see)
  • 1 can of corn
  • 1 (8oz.) package of mushrooms; sliced
  • 1 small yellow onion; diced
  • 1 & 1/2 c. green beans; cut in half
  • 4 celery stalks; chopped
  • 3 large carrots; chopped
  • 4 baby red potatoes
  • 1 packet of Knorr stew seasoning
  • 1 Tbsp. Extra virgin olive oil

Directions: 

  1. Microwave the red potatoes for about 3 minutes, or until they are soft enough to cut into
  2. While the potatoes are cooking, bring 6 cups of water to a boil and stir in the packet of seasoning
  3. Dice the potato into small cubes
  4. Add the potato, celery, carrots, green beans & corn into the broth.  Turn the heat down to medium
  5. While the veggies are cooking with the broth, coat a large pan with olive oil and saute the yellow onion & mushrooms until lightly browned
  6. Add with the onion & mushrooms in with rest of the vegetables and broth.  Turn the head down to medium-low
  7. Remove the fat off the steak and cut it into small cubes
  8. Saute the steak on medium-high until both sides are browned and it is still pink and tender on the inside
  9. Make sure the carrots, celery, and green beans are no longer crunchy.  Then, add the steak in with the rest of the ingredients
  10. Add more water if necessary (for a more “brothy” soup)

Serve & enjoy this comforting meal packed with veggies & protein!

I have made two kinds of stew within a matter of 3 weeks because I was craving it so much.  This stew has kale instead of green beans

This is a different variation of stew made with kale instead of green beans

I have made two kinds of stew within 3 weeks because I couldn’t stop craving it during a period of rainy weather here on the central coast of California!  Experiment with different variations of stew using different vegetables each time.
