Slow Cooker Vegetable Beef Stew Recipe

Publisher Photo
Here is a variation of a beef stew that I came across. With sweet flavor from apricots and squash, we think it has South American or Cuban flair. The addition of corn makes it even more hearty. —Ruth Rodriguez of Fort Myers Beach, Florida

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Apr. 29, 2012

This is so good! Savory but at the same time just a little sweet--and I always add more apricots--and the squash is delicious. Great with some crusty bread.

I found throw this recipe that I don`t like butternut squash, it was so soft and had little bit sour taste. We had difficult time to eat this stew.

This was absolutely delicious- not only did it taste wonderful- it was beautiful too! I will make this again and again. Perfect for Fall!!! Instead of stew meat I used London Broil cut in small pieces.
