Sweet & Savory Beef Stew

September/October 2008

Your rating: None Average: 4.3 (49 votes)

This beef stew for two replicates the flavors in tzimmes, a sweet stew traditionally served at Rosh Hashanah to start the New Year. This version gets natural sweetness from cherries and butternut squash.



READER'S COMMENT:
"This was a great recipe. There was no butternut squash at my market, so I used yellow squash. I also used dried cranberries because they were cheaper. The result was delicious!! I loved it so much that I am probably going to make it again...

havent made it yet but it sounds awesome!!!

I think I'm going to try it in a crock pot. Maybe just add the butternut squash a little later?

tasty

Will make this again, but must figure out how to make meat more tender. Used dried cranberries, cause that was what I had.

a different kind of stew

Easy and delicious. I would not recommend frozen butternut squash - it breaks down and you get almost a chunky ragu. Still tastes delicious, and saves chopping time, but it won't look like the pic! :)

Yum!

My husband and I really enjoyed this. We left out the cherries, but did everything else exactly as the recipe stated. We served it over a bed of cauliflower garlic mashed potatoes (prepare one packet of trader joe's boxed garlic mashed potato mix and add 1/2 head of steamed cauliflower...mash together.) Comfort foot at its finest!

Easy, Simple, not too many ingredients
