Beef Stew

This included beets along with the beef.


  • Crockpot


  • Enough water to cover the bottom of the crockpot
  • 1 qt. canned beef 1-2 lb. of cooked beef (stew meat) would also work.
  • 1 qt. canned beans, drained
  • 1 qt. canned beets, drained
  • 2 cups celery 2 cups combined of celery, onion, and/or garlic would also work.
  • 1 qt. pumpkin or squash puree


  • Put enough water in to cover the bottom of the crockpot. Mix beef, beans, beets and celery in crockpot. Add squash puree until it is spread throughout.
  • Cover and cook on low for 8-9 hours. Let sit with lid off for 5-10 minutes to cool. Serve and enjoy!


Frozen veggies and beef, thawed, could be used instead of canned ones.
The squash puree sweetens the dish.
