This looks good and I really want to make some stew. I was looking for a good recipe that didn't use beef. I really want to try this one!
I omitted the tomatoes, but otherwise very good, yes I will make again, but might try using the slow cooker.
Beef stew recipes may come to mind first when you're looking for warm and comforting main dish recipes. But chicken stew recipes also fit the bill, and bean stew is hearty and healthful as well. Slow cooker beef stew adds convenience to the mix. Try one of these full-bodied stews for your next wintry weeknight dinner.
Sweet, earthy and hearty — butternut is a favorite among squash lovers. It holds its shape in stews, gratins and risotto and makes a silky smooth puree for fall and winter baked goods.
