Italian Beef Stew : Low Carb

"This is a simple recipe for a tasty beef stew using Italian herbs and seasoning. Like many stews, this dish is really versatile and you could easily make it with lamb or pork instead (remember that this would change the nutrition values) and you can throw in lots of different vegetables if you choose too.
This is a quick stew that cooks in around 90 minutes but if you want a richer flavour and more tender meat then you could cook this in the oven in a casserole dish for 2-3 hours. Either way, it's really yummy regardless of how you cook it!

Serves Four
1 tsp olive oil
2 red onions, quartered
2 garlic cloves, finely chopped
1 green pepper, chopped
1 red pepper, chopped
2 carrots, chopped
500 g stewing steak
2 g Italian seasoning
2 g rosemary
800 ml beef stock

15 g tomato purée
1. Heat a large pot on a medium heat and add the olive oil and gently fry the onions for a few minutes. Add the garlic and fry for a further minute.
2. Throw in the carrots, peppers, tomato puree, stock, seasoning and beef to the pan and mix through.

3. Cover with a lid and simmer for around 90 minutes to allow the sauce to thicken. If the sauce isn't as thick as you would like, simmer with the lid off until it reaches your desired consistency.

That stew looks delicious. I always put potatoes in mine, but this would be much better while cutting carbs.

Hooray for simple dishes packed with flavour. We make similar things and tend to go down the slow bake route. They make excellent left-overs too.
