Montreal Steak Stew

Gluten Free Living – 2016

Montreal Steak Stew is a fantastic way to use up leftover steak! It’s filled with leeks, mushrooms, onion, celery, carrots, bell peppers, zucchini and yellow squash, potatoes and tomatoes. I seasoned it with marjoram, thyme and a seasoning blend of lavender, sage & rosemary. The steaks already had Montreal Steak seasoning on them for flavor, and I added Worcestershire and liquid smoke to amp up the flavors even more. I used a gluten free flour to thicken the stew, but regular flour can be used if you’re not gluten intolerant. It was one tasty stew.

Another easy thing about this recipe (after cutting up all the veggies), is that it all goes in the crockpot. I cooked most of the stew for a few hours before adding the squash at the end. If it’s added at the beginning it will disintegrate by the end of the cooking time, so I added it about 30-45 minutes before the stew was ready. It was perfectly cooked that way and not mushy.

I’m not big on reheating and eating leftover steaks but I make them into stew all the time. Almost any leftover beef can be made into a stew and I’ve done it with pot roast and brisket. For those trying to stretch their dollars this is a great way to do it. Almost any veggie will work too. Try adding corn, asparagus, green beans, peas–whatever you have on hand–in addition to any that I’ve used.

Give Montreal Steak Stew a try the next time you have leftover steak on your hands and you don’t know what to do with it! If you haven’t previously added Montreal Steak Seasoning to your steaks, then add about 1/2 tsp. (or more to taste) to the stew during cooking. Otherwise, just sit back and enjoy this delectable soup with a few slices of your favorite Crusty Bread.

    This sounds like a great way to use leftover steak, Teresa! My husband and I love Montreal Steak Seasoning. A soup flavored with it sounds good, too. There are so many ingredients that add even more flavor in this stew as well. I bet it is delicious!
