Beef Tagine with Butternut Squash

Paleo Beef
I cooked this last night it is delicious and really simple to cook.
Tagine (or tajine) in Moroccan cuisine are slow-cooked stews braised at low temperatures, resulting in tender meat with aromatic vegetables and sauce.
This dish had a great combination of flavors and is a nice twist on traditional beef stew.
Serves 4-6.

2 pounds beef roast (I used top round.), cut into one-inch cubes
2 tsp paprika (I used 1 tsp smoked and 1 tsp regular.)
1 tsp sea salt
1 tsp ground cinnamon
1 tsp ground ginger
1 tsp ground cumin
1 tsp turmeric
1/2 tsp crushed red pepper
1/2 tsp freshly ground black pepper
2 Tbsp extra virgin olive oil or coconut oil
1 medium yellow onion, chopped
4-6 large clove garlic, minced
2 (14.5 ounce) can diced tomatoes
2 pounds peeled, cubed butternut squash (Mine was precut from Costco.)
1/2 cup fresh cilantro

  1. Place cubed meat in a large bowl.
  2. Combine spices in a small bowl.
  3. Pour spices over beef and stir to thoroughly coat meat with spices.
  4. Combine onion, garlic, and beef in crock pot.
  5. Pour tomatoes over mixture.
  6. Cook on low for 5-6 hours or until beef is tender.
  7. Stir in squash and increase heat to high. Cook for about 90 minutes or until squash is tender.
  8. Taste mixture and add more salt and crushed red pepper, as needed.
  9. Stir in cilatro and serve in shallow plates or bowls.

I found this on Paleo Table, check the website out they have some great recipes.
