4 SmartPoints Per Serving
Preheat oven to 300°F. Season beef with salt and pepper. Heat oil in a Dutch oven over
medium-high heat. Add beef and cook, turning from time to time, until well browned on all
sides, 5 to 7 minutes. Transfer meat to slow cooker. Add onions, carrots, garlic, sage, thyme,
coffee and vinegar; bring to a simmer.
Cover and cook until beef is tender, 4 1/2 to 5 hours or High or 7 to 8 hours on Low. Add the
butternut squash and parsley in the last 2 hrs of cooking. Meanwhile, skim fat from the
braising liquid. Pour the liquid from your slow cooker into a medium saucepan Add the
cornstarch mixture and cook, whisking, until the gravy thickens slightly, about 1 minute.
