  • 1 1/2 to 2 pounds beef Chuck Roast, cut into 1-inch pieces
  • 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • 1 medium yellow onion, coarsely chopped

  • 1 tablespoon fish sauce (nam pla)
  • 3 cups peeled and cubed butternut squash (about 1 pound)
  • 2 cups frozen cut green beans
