Slow Cooker Soup Joumou ( Haitian Spicy Pumpkin Beef Stew)

To all of my Haitian peeps, I would like to say "Yes! This is possible!" lol.  This soup is a cuisine from my Haitian roots that is traditionally eaten on Sundays and used to celebrate the New Year.  It's a very hearty soup with alot of root vegetables and greens.  A very delicious soup to enjoy during those cold days.
