Lap-band Friendly: Argentine Beef and Winter Squash Stew

Submitted by: SUBPOPTART

Introduction

This is based on an Argentine Stew that is normally served in a baked pumpkin stew. I have added winter squash to the recipe so that it can be made even when pumpkins are unavailable.

Although the calorie count is a bit high, this is a hearty one pot meal so one serving is all you need
