Diabetic Beef Stew created by Jenny Sanders

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.

  • Chop the celery coarsely as well.
  • Peel and mince the garlic.
  • Saute the onions and celery until softened in the oil; remove them to a large stew pot.
  • Add the beef or lamb to the frying pan and cook until browned, stir in the garlic; then add the meat to the onions and celery.
  • Add the water or broth, the barley and the bay leaves to the stew pot.
  • Peel and chop all the remaining vegetables into bite-sized pieces.
  • Add them to the stew in the order given, then add the tomatoes and the spices.
  • Simmer the stew until the meat is done and the vegetables and barley are tender.
  • Add a little more water if needed.
  • This can be made ahead; stew keeps and reheats well.

    Yummy stew, followed the recipe pretty much .except I also added diced sweet potatoes and a sprig of fresh rosemary and thyme. I used beef both instead of water. Highly reccomend perfect for a cold New England winter night.

    This looks like a delicious stew. However the 41 carbs and 13 grams of sugar make this recipe unfit for diabetics. Please keep this in mind for those with serious diabetic health or pregnancy issues. Again, the ingredients look savory and delicious, just not something for people keeping tabs on their sugar intake.

    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.

    Great stew, not just for diabetics or those on restricted diets. Everyone will enjoy this. Thanks for posting Jenny.
