We have all enjoyed this stew dish many times.It's a bit different than the typical(and also good!)carrots 'n potato type beef stew!The recipe is from a tried and true cookbook of mine called "Back to Homemade" and is filled with exactly that-old fashioned,and homemade goods!As I shared below,my family enjoys this with "My Mom's Best Anadama Bread" which seems to be good with just about anything!I hope you enjoy this and that it warms your hearts,too!

  1. Mix flour,paprika,salt and pepper and coat stew beef with this flour mixture.
    Heat oil in Dutch oven.Add and cook beef in oil until nicely browned.
  2. Stir in all remaining ingredients EXCEPT.. the potatoes and.. your choice of either the pumpkin or squash.
    Heat to a boiling point,then reduce heat,cover and simmer about 2 hours or until beef is almost tender.
  3. Lastly,stir in potatoes and pumpkin.
    Cover and simmer about 30min's more,or until potatoes and pumpkin are tender and done.
  4. Ladle into soup bowls and enjoy with some homemade bread,corn bread,or whatever you want!
    My family is a bit spoiled and often requests this be served with my homemade "My Mom's Best Anadama Bread" ..and preferably out of the oven not long before...because they are so spoiled!
    Don't tell tho-I like it too!
