Beef Stew with Bacon, Onion, Sweet Potato and Butternut Squash

The Man brought home some new cookbooks for me. One of them was a Crock-Pot cookbook, and I dove straight into making some of the new super yummy-sounding recipes. Too bad for The Man I decided to start with a soup.


Ingredients List:

1 pound Beef Stew Meat (cut into 1-inch cubes)

2 14oz Can Beef Broth

2 Medium Sweet Potatoes (peeled and diced)

1 pound Butternut Squash (peeled and diced)

1 Large Onion (chopped)

2 Slices Thick Cut Bacon

1 Teaspoon dried Thyme

1 Teaspoon Salt

1/4 Teaspoon Black Pepper

2 Tablespoons Corn Starch

2 Tablespoons Water


  1. Coat your Crock-Pot with non-stick cooking spray.

  2. Combine all ingredients except cornstarch and water.

  3. Cook on low for 7-8 hours, or high for 4-5 hours

  4. When time is up, and 15 minutes before you want to eat, combine corn starch and water in a small glass.

  5. Stir cornstarch slurry into stew.

  6. Cover and cook till thickened, about 15 minutes.
