When I tried this recipe, I was amazed at how well all the flavors came together. This is a succulent, Moroccan stew like dish that’s packed full of flavor. I created my version of this recipe and the family loved it.  I am sure you will too!


  • 1 pound beef chuck roast, cut into 1 in. cubes
  • 1 ½ tsp. paprika
  • 1 tsp. cinnamon
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • ½ tsp. ground ginger
  • 1/8 tsp red pepper flakes
  • ½ tsp. black pepper
  • 2 Tbsp. olive oil
  • 1 med. yellow onion, cut into large strips
  • 6 garlic cloves, minced
  • ½ cup chicken broth
  • 1 can diced tomatoes (14.5 oz), undrained
  • 3 cups peeled, cubed butternut squash
  • ½ cup cilantro, chopped


  1. In a bowl add paprika, cinnamon, salt, ginger, pepper flakes, black pepper, stir to combine.
  2. Add beef to bowl and toss to coat.
  3. Heat oil in a skillet, and beef.  Cook until beef is browned, about 4 – 5 minutes.

  5. Add broth and tomatoes, bring to a boil. Cook for 5 min.
  6. Add butternut squash, cover, and simmer for 20 minutes, or until squash is fork tender.

I like to serve this with a side of quinoa
