Taking a few extra minutes in the morning to prepare this flavor-packed stew in a slow cooker means you’ll be greeted with a hearty meal when you get home at night. Using an equal amount of meat and mushrooms reduces calories while boosting your vegetable intake. For an even bigger veggie boost, serve with steamed broccoli.
