07 Jul Leftover Meat Stew with Plantains
Here’s a recipe for stew that’s perfect for serving up leftover roasted meat in a savory, delicious way.
This stew doesn’t have a fancy name, it’s too practical and comfy for that. Nothing ostentatious about it. Just leftover roasted meat turned into a flavorful, comforting stew dotted with plump, sweet plantains and squash. It’s the perfect thing to do with the leftovers from Sunday’s roast.
Here’s what you need
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 butternut squash, peeled, seeded and chopped
1 yellow onion, chopped
2 plantains, peeled and chopped
4 garlic cloves, minced
½ teaspoon chili powder
½ teaspoon cinnamon
¼ teaspoon ground cloves
1 tablespoon chipotle chili in adobo sauce (comes canned)
4 cups diced roasted beef or pork (Leftover roast works great!)
1 (28 oz) can of diced tomatoes
2 cups chicken or beef broth
1 (13.66 oz) can coconut milk
Dash of sea salt and fresh black pepper
In a large skillet, place the olive oil over medium high heat. Add the chopped butternut squash and onion. Cook for 5-8 minutes, until softened.
Transfer the squash and onion to a slow cooker. Add the remaining ingredients. Cook on low for 10 hours. Enjoy!
