This drawing is now closed. This will be the last Ellie Week giveaway, so that means you just have to post a comment here to be entered into the drawing for a copy of Ellie Krieger’s brand-new cookbook, So Easy (U.S. and Canada residents, please). And if for some reason you didn’t enter the first or second drawings, you still have a chance — I’ll randomly choose all three winners over the weekend.
I made a lot of recipes for Ellie week (way more than you’ve seen on my blog), but this one–Aromatic Beef Stew with Butternut Squash–is a stand-out, and it’s perfect for the Fall season. This rich stew combines chunks of stew beef with butternut squash and tomatoes. It’s richened with flavors like onion, garlic, and fresh ginger. Then it’s spiced up with cumin, red pepper flakes, and even some ground cinnamon. Ellie recommends serving it over whole wheat couscous, which is just what I did. If this recipe is good for me, it sure doesn’t taste like it. P.S. This tastes even better the next day as leftovers. I know because I made mine late one night and ate it the day after. P.P.S. Don’t forget to enter all three drawings for a copy of Ellie’s new book!
