Ingredients

    • 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
    • 1-1/4 pounds beef, top round, cut into 3/4-inch pieces
    • 3 cloves garlic, minced
    • salt, to taste
    • pepper, to taste
    • 1 medium onion, coarsely chopped
    • 3 medium carrots, peeled and cut into 3/4-inch pieces
    • 2 medium parsnips, cut into large chunks (optional)
    • 3 cups low-fat, reduced-sodium beef broth
    • 4 medium russet potatoes, peeled and cut into large chunks
    • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh rosemary
    • 1 leek, coarsely chopped
    • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley

Directions

    • In large pot over medium-high heat, heat oil. Add beef and garlic. Cook, gently stirring until meat is evenly browned. Season with salt and pepper.
    • Add onion, carrots and parsnips. Cook 3-4 minutes. Stir in broth and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to low and simmer about 75 minutes, or until meat is tender.
