Old Fashioned Canadian Stew

Here’s a low potassium version of the classic Canadian stew.


  • 1 slice 1.10 lbs (500 g) boneless beef blade, fat removed
  • 2 tablespoons (30 ml) olive oil
  • 1 cup onion, sliced
  • 6 cloves garlic, peeled
  • 1 tablespoon (15 ml) whole-grain mustard
  • 2 cups turnip, cubed
  • 1 cup carrots, sliced
  • 4 cups cabbage, shredded
  • 4 cups low sodium chicken or beef broth


In a skillet, brown the meat on both sides in the oil. Place in the slow cooker. Set aside.

In the same skillet, brown the onion and garlic.

Deglaze with 1 cup low sodium chicken or beef broth and add the mustard. Pour into the slow cooker and add the remaining ingredients.

Cover and cook on low for about 8 hours or until the meat is fork-tender. Adjust the seasoning.
