  • Stew Beef – we always try to get our meats locally, which helps the farmers in our town. Stop by your local meat market or farmer’s market for some options in your area.
  • Extra Virgin Olive Oil: I like to use this fruity olive oil which has a fantastic flavor and deep color- it’s really inexpensive online here, so I keep a few liters stocked up in my pantry.  For the quality, it’s an excellent value, I would highly recommend!
  • Onions
  • Garlic
  • Carrots
  • No-Salt-Added Vegetable Stock – I like to make my own using my recipe here, however use any brand that has 0 added sodium.
  • Potatoes
  • Mushrooms
  • Red Wine – make sure it’s certified gluten free
  • Low Sodium Worcestershire Sauce: for that unbelievably tangy umami flavor that bring the classic taste to these Sloppy Joes!  I love using this low sodium Worcestershire sauce in all kinds of recipes, at only 45mg sodium per serving, a little goes a long way on flavor.
  • Herbs de Provence: my favorite spice blend! This French blend has a mix of rosemary, thyme, sage, and savory for a wonderful and complex flavor.
  • Bay Leaves: I always add bay leaves to every stew or soup I make… it gives the soup a deep flavor which is savory and delicious!
  • Peas
  • Parsley
  • Low Sodium Tomato Paste: thickens the sauce with a deep bold tomato flavor.  I only use a no salt added tomato paste, so you can control the amount of salt in this stew.

How Do I Make Beef Stew With No Salt Added?

Sodium can pop up in many ingredient lists, under preservatives or names you may not recognize. Always check your labels for sodium content before cooking!

  1. In a Dutch oven, add the meat and sear on medium-to-high heat until the cubes of meat are charred on the outside. Using a slotted spoon, transfer the meat into a mixing bowl, and set aside.
  2. In the same Dutch oven, add the olive oil, onions, garlic, and carrots. Sauté over low heat for 7 to 8 minutes until vegetables begin to soften.
  3. Add the potatoes, mushrooms, vegetable stock, red wine, tomato paste, Worcestershire sauce, Herbs de Provence, and bay leaves and bring to a boil. Allow the stew to boil down over high heat for 30 minutes, uncovered.
  4. After 30 minutes, cover the stew and simmer for 1 hour.
  5. Remove the bay leaves, and add the peas and parsley before serving.  Serve hot. Leftovers will last for up to 2 days in the refrigerator.
