3/4 pound beef top round, cut into 1-inch cubes
1 teaspoon finely chopped fresh garlic
1 medium (1/2 cup) carrot, chopped
1 small (1 1/2 cups) butternut squash, peeled, cut into 1/2-inch cubes
6 dried peaches, quartered
1 (14-ounce) can beef broth
1 (14 1/2-ounce) can stewed tomatoes
1 (7-ounce) can whole kernel corn, drained
1 teaspoon dried oregano leaves
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley


Melt butter in 3-quart saucepan until sizzling; add beef cubes and garlic. Cook over medium-high heat, stirring occasionally, 3-4 minutes or until browned. Add all remaining ingredients except parsley. Continue cooking 3-4 minutes or until mixture comes to a boil.

Reduce heat to medium. Cover; cook, stirring occasionally, 14-16 minutes or until beef and vegetables are tender. Stir in parsley.

Recipe Tip

Argentineans also use pumpkin, instead of squash, in this dish, but the American grown pumpkin is too bland, so it is not recommended.

cooking it a bit longer to soften up the beef and thicken the
Couldn't find dried peaches so we used dried apricots. Also added a little corn starch and water at the end of cooking time to make the liquid thicker. It turned out delicious and was so easy to make. Carmenere wine is a great match.
