Recipe from Dr. Hyman
- Prep: 15 m
- Cook: 4 h
- Total: 4 h 15 m
- Servings: 4
- 3 tbsp arrowroot powder
- 1 tsp salt divided
- 3/4 tsp pepper divided
- 1 lb lamb or beef stew meat
- 1 tbsp olive oil extra-virgin
- 4 cups broth low sodium (chicken, beef or lamb)
- 1 onion diced
- 3 cloves garlic minced
- 1 large sweet potato somewhat finely cubed
- 2 large carrots chopped
- 5 cremini mushrooms chopped
- 1/2 head green cabbage diced
- 1 tsp dried thyme
- 1/2 tsp dried parsley
- 1/2 tsp dried sage
- In a large bowl, mix the arrowroot, 1/2 teaspoon salt and 1/4 teaspoon pepper together. Add the stew meat and toss to coat meat in the arrowroot powder.
- In a large skillet, heat the oil over medium-high heat. Add the stew meat and brown for 3 to 4 minutes, turning to ensure even browning on all sides. Transfer the meat to a plate and set aside. With the heat still on, add the broth to the skillet and scrape the bottom of the pan to loosen up any brown bits.
- Prepare a slow cooker. Add the broth from the skillet, onions, garlic, potatoes, carrots, mushrooms, cabbage and all herbs. Season with remaining salt and pepper.
- Cook on low for 4 hours or until meat is cooked through and vegetables are tender. Check for seasoning when stew is finished, and season to taste with more salt and pepper, if desired.
- Store all leftovers in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 5 days
