Mom's New Beef Stew

I got this from The Biggest Loser Cookbook, so you know it's healthy! I love the sweet potatoes instead of regular ones too. We are having it tonight (no that doesn't mean I'm adding a picture), and the kitchen smells great.

1 Tb whole grain oat flour (I use wheat flour)
1/8 tsp garlic powder
1/8 tsp salt
pinch of black ground pepper

1 lb. top round steak, cut into 1" cubes
2 tsp extra-virgin olive oil
8 oz button mushrooms, halved (or other small mushrooms sliced)
1 onion, chopped
1 TB minced garlic
1 tsp dried thyme
2 cans (14 oz each) lower sodium, fat free beef broth
2 carrots, peeled and sliced
1 lb sweet potatoes, peeled and cut into 1" cubes

In medium resealable bag combine flour, garlic powder, salt, and pepper. Add the beef and shake the bag until all the cubes are coated. Refrigerate for at least 15 minutes.

Set a large non-stick pot over med-high heat until water will sizzle. Add the oil. Add the beef cubes from the bag and brown (about 1 min per side). Reduce the heat to medium. Add the mushrooms, onion, garlic, and thyme. Cook, stirring occasionally, for about 10 min or until the onion is tender.

Add broth and carrots. Bring to boil, then reduce to simmer. Cover and cook for 45 minutes.

Add the potatoes. Cook for another 45 minutes.

And for everyone watching their diets I'll share the health info. This makes 9 servings of 1 cup each.
