Low Sodium Beef Stew Recipe

Low Sodium Beef Stew
As someone with considerably high Blood Pressure I try to eat a low sodium diet as much as possible. Here is a recipe you will enjoy.

Ingredients for low sodium beef stew:

  • 1 pound beef steak
  • 2 teaspoons oil
  • 2 cups diced onions
  • 1 cup diced celery
  • 1 cup diced tomatoes
  • 1/2 cup diced red potatoes 
  • 1 cup diced carrots
  • 2 cloves of garlic, chopped
  • 1/4 cup red wine vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon balsamic vinegar
  • 3 cups low-sodium vegetable beef stock
  • 1 teaspoon thyme
  • 1 tablespoon parsley
  • 1 tablespoon dried oregano

Note: You can also use Sweet Potatoes/Yams, Mushrooms, and sage along with what ever other spices or veggies you want to add to the pot.


Preheat broiler to medium heat. Broil steak 12 to 13 minutes turning only once. Remove from heat and let stand  while preparing vegetables.

In a stock pot, saute vegetables in oil over medium-high heat for about 8-10 minutes.

Pat meat dry with paper towel. Dice grilled steak, add to pot. Next add your vinegars, stock, herbs and spices.

Bring to simmer and let cook 1- 1 & 1/2 hours, until stew has thickened .

Serve hot. Enjoy!
