Fireside Beef Stew

Fireside Beef Stew
(from Diabetic Living Slow Cooker Recipes)

1 1/2 pounds boneless beef chuck pot roast
1 pound butternut squash, in 1 inch pieces ~2 1/2 cups
2 small onions, cut into wedges
2 cloves minces garlic
1 14 ounce can reduced-sodium beef broth
1 8 ounce can tomato sauce
2 Tbsp Worcestershire sauce
1 tsp dry mustard
1/4 tsp black pepper
1/8 tsp black pepper
1/8 tsp ground allspice
4 tsp corn starch
2 Tbsp cold water
1 9-ounce package frozen Italian green beans

Trim fat from meat. Cut into 1-inch pieces. Place meat in slow cooker. Add squash, onions, & garlic. Stir in beef broth, tomato sauce, Worcestershire sauce, mustard, pepper, & allspice. Cover & cook on low for 8 to 10 hours (or high for 4 to 5).

Turn to high heat. In small bowl, combine cornstarch & water. Stir cornstarch mixture & green beans into mixture in cooker. Cover & cook 15 minutes more or until thickened.

*My note - if doubling, use 6-7 quart crockpot & instead of doubling tomato sauce, use only the single 8 ounce can of tomato sauce and add 8 ounce can of tomato paste instead.
