Healing Meals - Irish Stew Easy Healthy Recipe


  • 3 tablespoons Arrowroot powder
  • 1 teaspoon Sea Salt divided
  • 3/4 teaspoon Ground black pepper divided
  • 1 pound Lamb or beef stew meat (grass fed, if possible)
  • 1 tablespoon Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • 4 cups Low Sodium broth (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 teaspoon Dried Thyme
  • 1/2 teaspoon Dried parsley
  • 1/2 teaspoon Dried Sage


Step 1

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.

Step 2

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.

Step 3

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.

Step 4

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.

Step 5

Store all leftovers in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 5 days
