“Low Fat - Delicious - It can (should) be made in advance, and eaten over many days. Add water to reheat. Even better, add fresh veggies at each meal. -- BETTER the next day.... NOTE: For low carb, leave out potatoes, or substitute other hard veggies, like fresh green beans.”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Rinse meat, and pat dry with paper towel. Sprinkle with salt & pepper, and dust with flour.
  2. Heat olive oil to medium-high/high in stew pot - I prefer lg Le Creuset dutch oven.
  3. Sear seasoned, floured meat -- approx 1 min per side -- stir with wooden spoon, once.
  4. Add onion to brown with meat -- brown is the goal, black becomes bitter!
  5. Toss in celery, 2 carrots, bay leaves, and water (start with 2 cups) -- water should hit a HOT, sizzling pot.
  6. Stir with wooden spoon to help release seared sugars (the brown stuff) into water.
  7. Turn down to "low".
  8. Cover & simmer (or cook in oven) for 2 hours, minimum.
  9. Stir occasionally, Adding water as needed.
  10. 20-30 minutes before serving, add potatoes & remaining carrots.
