Vegetable Beef Stew

The combination of the butternut squash, carrots and apricots makes this stew recipe awesome!  
Serves 4 ( 1-½ c. = 7 points +)

  • ¾ lb. lean beef stew meat, cut into ½ inch cubes
  • 2 tsp. canola oil
  • 1 can ( 14.5 oz) beef broth
  • 1 can ( 14.5 oz) stewed tomatoes
  • 1-½ c. cubed, peeled butternut squash
  • 6 dried apricots halves, chopped
  • ½ c. chopped carrot
  • 1 tsp. dried oregano
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 2 T. cornstarch
  • ¼ c. water

In a nonstick skillet, cook beef in oil until no longer pink. Place beef along with remaining ingredients through salt and pepper in a slow cooker. Cook on high for 4-5 hours or until beef and veggies are tender.
Mix cornstarch with water. Stir into beef mixture. Cover and cook until gravy is thickened ( about 30 minutes).
