Healthified Hearty Vegetable Beef Stew


Nonstick cooking spray
pounds boneless beef chuck roast, trimmed of fat
ounces tiny new potatoes, quartered
medium carrots, cut into 1/2-inch pieces
medium onion, cut into wedges
can (10.75 oz) reduced-fat and reduced-sodium condensed cream of mushroom soup
cup lower-sodium beef broth
teaspoon dried marjoram or dried thyme, crushed
cups frozen cut green beans (about 9 ounces)


  • Step1Cut beef into 1-inch cubes. Coat an unheated large skillet with nonstick cooking spray. Preheat over medium-high heat. Add half of the beef cubes. Cook and stir until browned; remove from skillet. Add remaining beef cubes; cook and stir until browned. Drain off fat from beef.
  • Step2Place beef in a 3 1/2- or 4-quart slow cooker. Add potatoes, carrots, onion, cream of mushroom soup, beef broth, and marjoram. Stir to combine. Cover and cook on low-heat setting for 8 to 9 hours or on high-heat setting for 4 to 41/2 hours.
  • Step3If using low-heat setting, turn to high-heat setting. Stir in green beans. Cover and cook about 30 minutes more or just until green beans are tender.
