  • 48 oz Beef Chuck (Arm Pot Roast, Lean Only, Trimmed to 1/8" Fat, Select Grade)
  • 4 oz, raw (yield after cooking) Bacon
  • 3 tbsp Canola Vegetable Oil
  • 1 1/2 cup, chopped Onions
  • 2/3 cup, chopped Carrots
  • 1 stalk, medium (7-1/2" - 8" long) Celery
  • 2 clove Garlic
  • 16 fl oz Red Table Wine
  • 2 can (14 oz), ready-to-serve Beef Broth, Bouillon or Consomme
  • 1 tsp, crumbled Bay Leaf
  • 8 oz Mushroom Pieces and Stems
  • 3 tsp Thyme
  • 1 tbsp Parsley
  • 3/4 serving Atkins Flour Mix


Use the Atkins recipe to make Atkins Flour Mix for this recipe; you will need 1/4 cup to thicken the stew.
  1. Season beef cubes with salt and pepper. Spread 1/4 cup Atkins Flour Mix in a baking dish and lightly coat cubes, tapping to remove any excess.
  2. In a large stock pot (or Dutch oven) over medium heat, cook bacon until crisp. Remove bacon, crumble, and set aside. Dice the onion and carrot, chop the celery and dice the garlic; set aside.
  3. Add oil to remaining bacon fat in pot. Over medium-high heat, brown beef cubes in batches. Remove beef from pot, and add white onion,carrot and celery and sauté over medium heat for about 8 minutes, or until softened. Add garlic and cook for another 30 seconds, until aroma is released.
  4. Pour in wine and increase heat to high. Boil wine until reduced to 1 cup, about 5 minutes. Return beef and accumulated juices to pot. Pour in beef broth and add bay leaf. Reduce heat to low, cover partially and simmer 2 hours.Add mushrooms, thyme and parsley and continue cooking for another 30 minutes, until beef is fork-tender and sauce has thickened.
  5. Remove bay leaf, and serve with crumbled bacon.

Cooking Tip

Pat the meat dry after cubing to help spices and flour stick better.

How we calculate the Net Atkins Count™

In the Atkins Nutritional Approach®, the Net Atkins Count™ is calculated by subtracting the number of grams of fiber and polyols (such as glycerin and sugar alcohols) from the total grams of carbohydrates in whole foods. This reflects the idea that fiber and polyols minimally impacts blood sugar levels at the doses present in the products.
