Heat 3 Tbs. oil in a Dutch oven over medium heat. Saute the onions, garlic, rosemary, and thyme for about 2 minutes, or until tender. In a bowl, combine the flour, salt, and pepper. Add in the beef cubes and toss to coat. Increase the heat in the Dutch oven and add in the beef. Cook for 5 minutes, or until the beef is browned. Add in the wine and deglaze the pan. Add the tomatoes and stir to combine. Add enough broth to cover the beef and bring the stew to a boil over high heat. Reduce the heat and simmer for 40 minutes. Add in the squash and another 1 C. broth. Return to a boil, reduce the heat and simmer for an additional 25 minutes. Season with salt and pepper. Sprinkle with the parsley.
