Serves 4 People

  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 pound stew beef, cut into cubes
  • 1 large onion, chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 tablespoon peeled and minced fresh ginger
  • 1 pound butternut squash, peeled and cut into 1 1/2-inch cubes (about 2 1/2 cups)
  • 1 can (14.5 oz) no-salt-added diced tomatoes
  • 1 can (8 oz) no-salt-added tomato sauce
  • 1 1/2 cups low-sodium beef broth
