Low Calorie Slow Cooker Beef Stew

5/5

One of my favorite soup like substances is stew. 

I love that it’s a meal in itself, is easy to make and there’s always leftovers! This low calorie slow cooker beef stew is so tasty and is stick-to-your-ribs delicious!

I’m a big lover of beef. 

I really believe beef is the reason why I could never make it as a vegetarian. 

That, and…bacon.

I don’t remember ever having homemade beef stew. 

My family always bought this stew when I was a child, and I still buy it once and awhile when I need a little comfort food, or an easy meal.

Ingredients

2 pounds beef, eye round, stew meat
2 (8 ounce) packages of mushrooms (I like Portobello)
4 cups chopped onion
3 cups chopped celery
2 1/2 cups chopped carrot
3 (11.5 oz) cans of this ingredient 
1/4 tsp salt (to taste, could add more or less)
1 tablespoon sugar
1 tablespoon garlic powder
2 tablespoons uncooked granulated tapioca (I used this and liked this kind here)
1 bay leaf (optional) – remove before eating
Chopped flat leaf Italian parsley for garnish (optional)

Directions

  1. Blend tomato juice, salt, sugar, garlic powder, and tapioca in a blender until smooth. This here is the blender I used and it worked wonders!
  2. Mix onion, carrot, celery, mushrooms and stew meat with blender mixture and stir well. Add bay leaf if desired. 
  3. Cover and cook on high for 5 hours or until beef is cooked through. 
  4. Remove bay leaf before eating if you add it to ingredients. 
  5. Serve by 1 & 3/4 cup, sprinkle with parsley if desired.
