This is not the best recipe. I think it has to do with the amound of onion and the diced tomato. The meat though was the best! I think next time I will just follow a regular beef stew recipe and add acorn squash. I found that the melon baller was instrumental in gutting the squash. If you try this recipe let me know what you think.
