Slow Cooker Beef Stew – Low-Calorie

This slow cooker beef stew recipe is mouthwatering and lower in calories per serving. Perfect for dinner on those cooler nights.

 

I adore a hearty bowl of stew on a cold day. Those of you not from Arizona may not believe that it ever gets cold here, but it actually does. Currently we have lows in the 40’s and highs in the 60’s. Brr. Okay, in all seriousness, that is cold weather for Arizona, and also the perfect time to break out recipes for soups and stews.

 

I hadn’t made stew in so long, but I love them and I’m glad I did because it hit the spot. Hearty chunks of beef, veggies, and a mouthwatering broth, equals the perfect dinner for a cool evening. The entire family loved this low-calorie recipe, so it’s a keeper for sure.
