Beef and pumpkin stew

Submitted by: MAREN_MN

Introduction

Use any vegetables you like, but pumpkin and potato are a must. I've listed the vegetables that were in my fridge at the time I made the recipe. Use the type of seasonings that you like. Fresh herbs would be very good, but not available where I am. Can be made in a crockpot too. Use any vegetables you like, but pumpkin and potato are a must.
