This would make a great beef stew for St. Patrick's Day, though it can be enjoyed any time of the year. But what makes it a good choice for St, Patrick's Day is that it's lower in fat than a corned beef dinner.

What You'll Need

  • 1 pound white potatoes, peeled and quartered
  • 1 medium onion, roughly chopped
  • 1 1/2 cups sliced carrots
  • 8 ounces sliced mushrooms
  • 2 stalks celery, sliced
  • 3/4 pound lean stewing beef, trimmed
  • 1 teaspoon dried mixed herbs
  • 1 bay leaf
  • 1/4 cup finely chopped fresh parsley
  • 2 tablespoons cornstarch mixed in 1/4 cup water/broth
  • 3/4 cup fat-free, low-sodium beef broth
  • 1/4 cup red wine

How to Make It

  1. Place potato pieces in the bottom of a 4-quart crockpot, followed by other vegetables.
  2. Add beef on top.
  3. Sprinkle herbs and add bay leaf.
  4. Add cornstarch mixture to broth and pour over meat and vegetables, followed by the red wine.
  5. Cook on low for 6 hours.
