I didn't have the time or exactly all the ingredients to do this so I customized it like this: I cubed two large pork chops and tossed them in a bag with the flour and all the spices. Then, I cooked them over medium heat till brown. I removed them from the pan and sauteed in butter the onion, when the onion was translucent I added the squash and then the spinach and cooked them through. Then, I added the meat back in and added the beef broth, tomatoes, red pepper flakes and a can of mushrooms. I also added 2 cans of great northern beans because that is what I had. Then, I let it all simmer in the pot over low heat for about 40 minutes. I served with various cheeses and some crusty bread. Delicious! The whole family, four year old included, loved it!
I made this over the weekend and WOW it was one of the best stews I have ever, ever had. My only regret? There were no leftovers. I'll definitely be doubling next time (it did feed two adults, a teenage boy, and 3 little kids and no one was left hungry although some of us would have liked more).
Wonderful flavor, but a little too time consuming! I ran out of time after toasting the flour, so I threw everything in the crock pot for 5 hours on high.
