I had a friend make this while I was staying with her for a few days as she knows I am allergic to White Potatoes. (Strange, I know!) This was absolutely delicious!! All at the meal were in love with it! I would have never thought of squash and turnips in beef stew. Wonderful. So glad I can have Beef Stew again!
This was a nice change of piece from typical beef stew with a wonderful assortment of fresh vegetables. The barley was also a nice addition. This was definitely lighter on the beef-to-vegetable ratio. I did not precook the beef but just added it to the crock pot with the rest of the ingredients. The only problem that I had with this recipe is that 8 hours on high is way too long and everything overcooked. Food was stuck to the side of the crock pot and the vegetables were too mushy. I think this should cook on LOW for 8 hours and would be just perfect. Made for Fall PAC 2012.
