Beef and Butternut Squash Stew

I've looks at this recipe a few times, and though it got great reviews, I was hesitant to try it. Why? I'm not sure...maybe because I've never really tried squash?!?
 
I was missing out. This is awesome! I used the crockpot after I browned the beef cause I was short on time today, but it was still delicious!
 
Give it a whirl, let me know what you think!
