This deliciously earthy, smoky, paleo slow cooker recipe is a great winter warmer for the whole family.
Pop the ingredients in your slow cooker first thing in the morning, then head out for the day. On your return, the delicious aromas that have filled your home will feel like a warm, loving hug. You won't want to do anything other than go and grab a bowl full immediately, probably even before you've removed your coat!
This is the ultimate in soul comforting food; the only thing that could make it better is to sit by a roaring fire as you warm your chilly hands on your bowl!
If you don't have a small army to feed, keep the leftovers for the next couple of night's dinner, just reheat thoroughly and you've got a delicious meal with no prep and no washing up - result!
Lots of winter vegetables are orange in colour. This is because they contain beta carotene (a form of vitamin A). Now I am not a doctor or nutritionist, but beef and winter vegetable stews are part of our traditional eating habits and I wondered, as I was cooking this dish, whether there was any kind of nutritional benefit of combining these two foods. I had a feeling that vitamin A might help with iron absorption, and it would appear that I am correct, so that's a pretty good reason to indulge in our warming winter squash recipe wouldn't you say?
