    Jenny Sanders's Note:

    This is posted in response to a request for a stew that was low in fat, low in high-glycemic carbohydrates, and high in fibre. I think this fits the bill.

      Very good stew! I didn't add the turnips or rutabagas because I had none on hand. The seasonings were just perfect. Thank you for posting this good recipe.

      Sauteed the veggies as directed, and threw everything in the crockpot -- no rutabagas nor turnips. Did add a tad of flour to the browning beef. Left it in the crockpot for 8 hours -- most on High. was tasty enough, but not outstanding. Thanks for posting, Jenny.
