Healthy Irish Beef Stew

Ingredients:

  • 1 Tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  • 1¼ lbs stew meat with the fat trimmed
  • 3 cloves minced garlic
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • 3 medium carrots, peeled and cut into ¾-inch pieces
  • 3 cup low-fat, reduced-sodium beef broth
  • 4 medium russet potatoes, peeled and cut into chunks
  • 1 Tbsp chopped fresh rosemary
  • 1 leek, coarsely chopped

Directions:
Heat oil in a large pot over medium-high heat. Add beef and garlic. Cook, stirring until meat is evenly browned. Season with salt and pepper. Add onion and carrots, then cook for 3-4 minutes. Stir in broth and bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer for about an hour and 15 minutes.

Stir in potatoes and simmer another 30 minutes. Add rosemary and leeks; continue to simmer until potatoes are tender. Do not overcook or potatoes will fall apart.
