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.

Servings: 14

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


  1. 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.
