This beef stew is my daughter’s favorite. I made this all the time because she becomes “friendly” with me when I make this. She requested me to cook this beef stew for her pot luck in school and her friends like it too, so I am sharing the recipe today. I got the recipe from my favorite cookbook but I changed the ingredients to fit on out liking and my schedule; so I hope you like it…

    1. Sorry, I hope I’m not too late responding your comment. Using Butternut squash will change the taste of this recipe. You will miss the sweetness from the sweet potato; although the texture will be the same. Thanks for visiting.
