Butternut Squash and Beef Soup
Tough cuts of beef or pork, which improve with long, slow cooking, are ideal for fall menus. Potatoes, hard-shell squash and canned beans are also impervious to extended cooking.
Opt for a few convenience items to free you from the kitchen. For example, buy frozen diced squash instead of a whole squash that needs paring. Choose fire-roasted canned tomatoes with twice the flavor of plain tomatoes. Ask your butcher for cut-up beef or pork so you can avoid that step.
Prepare the following Butternut Squash and Beef Soup recipe and let the aromas entice the spirits in your neighborhood.
