Delicious Beef Stew


Had all the fixings for the stew – so I whipped it up for dinner.

Delicious Beef Stew

– 1 medium onion, diced

– 1 parsnip, diced or sliced

– 2 carrots, diced or sliced

– 3 small potatoes, cubed

– 3 sticks of celery, diced

– 1 pound stewing beef – sliced into bite size chunks

– 1 can (500mL) of diced tomatoes (no salt added)

– 1 low sodium gluten free beef stock cube or 3 cups of gluten free beef stock

– Salt and fresh ground pepper to taste

– Italian seasoning or basil and oregano (to taste – around 2 tsp)

– 2 cans full of water (omit if using stock)

– 2 tbsp rice flour in 2 tbsp water


1. In large stock pot, heat oil on medium heat.  Add onion, carrots, celery, parsnips and saute about 5 minutes.  Add the beef and cook until just browned on the outside.

2. Add the tomatoes and juice, stock/water, spices. Cook on medium-low until vegetables are tender.
