21 Day Fix Extreme Beef Stew

This Meal is straight from the 21 Day Fix Extrme meal plan. It's AMAZING!!   

21 Day Fix Extreme Beef Stew It is a green container and a red container and it feels like a hearty filling meal.

It makes 6 servings, approximately 1 1/4 cups each


  • 1 tsp. olive oil
  • 1 1/2 lbs raw lean beef stew meat, boneless, cut into 2 inch cubes
  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • 1/2 green bell pepper, chopped
  • 1/2 red bell pepper, chopped
  • 4 cloves of garlic, crushed
  • 2 medium tomatoes, chopped
  • 1 cup low sodium organic beef broth
  • 1 bay leaf
  • 1 tsp. sea salt
  • 1 tsp. ground black pepper
  • 2 cups cubed butternut squash
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh flat leaf parsley

  • Heat oil in large saucepan over medium high heat.
  • Add beef, cook, stirring frequently, for 4 to 5 minutes, or until beef is brown.
  • Add onion and bell peppers; cook stirring frequently for 4 to 5 minutes, or until onion is translucent.
  • Add garlic, cook stirring frequently for 1 minute.
  • Add tomatoes, broth, bay leaf, salt, and pepper. Bring to a boil.
  • Reduce heat to medium - low, cook, covered for 40 minutes
  • Add squash, cook stirring for 8 to 12 minutes occasionally or until the sauce thickens and beef is fork tender.
  • Remove the bay leaf, top with parsley and serve.

I actually make extra and have for the next few days for lunch!  The squash should be soft when poked with a fork.
