I created this recipe at the request of our registered dietitian, Meghan. After talking with clients who need to adhere to a low-sodium diet, and doing presentations in the community about heart-healthy eating, she wanted some examples of how to build flavor in a recipe without adding salt. This dish is a prime example. Sauteing all the vegetables and beef together in one pot and allowing the stew to simmer for a while allows the flavors to build, and stirring in fresh herbs and lemon juice at the end brings everything together without adding any salt.
