This Sweet & Savory Beef Stew is so delicious. It is a wonderful stew which will warm you on even the coldest day. The sauce is naturally sweetened from the addition of dried cherries and the butternut squash. I think this sweetness complements the tenderness of the beef beautifully.

It’s really easy to make too, although it has a long cooking time to ensure the most tender beef pieces. I start by browning the beef. Then I fry the shallots and add herbs and seasonings. I pour in the broth and scrape any brown bits from the bottom – you want these for the flavor! I stir in the butternut squash and place the stew in the oven for an hour. Stir in the cherries and cook for another 30 minutes before serving with rice, pasta or potatoes. Yum!
