Keyword beef stew, winter squash
2lbsstew beefcut into about 1 inch chunks
3large golden potatoes
1medium acorn squash
1/2medium butternut squash
Water to cover the meat and vegetableshot (heat up separately)
3-4springs of thyme
salt &fresh cracked pepper to taste
1 8ozof tomato sauce
Cut the stew beef into 1-inch chunks. I like to trim some of the fat off but not all.
Place the beef in the slow cooker and sprinkle with flour. Stir well so that the meat is coated in flour.
Peel and chop your vegetable into about 1/2-1 inch cubes and add them to the pot.
Add hot water slowly, while stirring, until all the vegetables are covered.
Add the tomato sauce, Worcestershire sauce, paprika, salt and pepper. Stir well.
Throw in the bay leaf and thyme springs.
Cover and slow cook for about 6-8 hours. Remember, don't be like me! Don't have a blonde moment, plug in your slow cooker!
