Mid-week stew – beef and root vege

I haven’t done a mid-week stew in a while – haven’t had need as we’ve been on holiday!

This week’s is beef with root vege – butternut squash and carrots. We both love butternut squash but am taking a risk with carrots by putting them in chunks (I usually grate them) – Hubby is not keen. So we’ll see how that goes down.

I roughly chopped two onions, a butternut squash, and 5 of 6 small carrots. These were added to the slow cooker.

The beef (about 400g) was browned and added to the slow cooker.

I added 450ml that’s how much water one Knorr stock cube needs) beef stock and seasoning. I also added at least 2 tsp Herbs de Provence.

The slow cooker was set for 8 hours. Tasted great when it came out and will be having it with some leftover pasta for dinner tomorrow night.
