Ingredients
  

  • 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

Instructions
 

  • 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
