    Pumpkin Pork Stew

    NANCY CHAPMAN from Yorba Linda, CA

    This is such an incredible dish! The aroma is wonderful! I love the favor and the texture of the dish. I have never thought of combining pumpkin and pork together and yet it turns out to be one of the best dishes I have ever tasted.

    Better than sounds!

    Karin Fritz from MONTAGUE, MA

    I tried this recipe because the reviews were so good. The flavor is incredible. I used Pinot Grigio & broccoli as substitutions. I was surprised that the pumpkin flavor didn't stand out, instead everything blended to a perfect winter stew, making you wonder what were the ingredients ? This is a keeper! It's easy and fine for company.

    Tears to my eyes!

    Christina from McAllen, Texas

    This recipe was AMAZING! I have been reading how healthy pumpkin is and I wanted to use it in dishes other than desserts. This recipe not only is healthy but very delicious!!! I added sweet potatoes the second time and it was even more delicious!

    Suprisingly Tastey

    Lisa from St. Louis, MO

    Feeling quite daring one day, we decided to give this recipe a whirl. We were apprehensive about the pumpkin base. I would have never tried anything like this, but was curious after reading the other reviews. We were pleasantly surprised with the flavor - quite tastey. The encore meal was even better a couple days later.

    We left out the wine and cinnamon stick and it was still very good. We are going to try differnet kinds of meat to see if they work as well.

    Dare To Be Different

    Terrie Wolf from Peyton, CO

    My boys are not great fans of anything "pumpkin," "pork" or "green bean"; or so they thought until now! The recipe, while plentiful, is supposed to provide six servings, but it proved to be barely enough for two hungry teenagers! Very flavorful, simple to prepare and what a great aroma!

    This was a good stew. Didn't really taste the pumpkin in it and my stew seamed to be very thick. I kept adding more broth.

    PUMPKIN PORK STEW

    ANGELINA ROGERS from AKRON, OH

    I had my doubts about this dish, but after reading the reviews it got, I had to try it. I used my slow cooker, put it together before church, and it was ready and waiting when we returned after a longer day than usual. It was rainy today, so this was good and comforting. I used stock instead of the wine, and a bit more spice. It made plenty to share with a neighbor, and we all enjoyed it very much. This recipe truly shows how many different ways to use pumpkin.

    Yummm

    M. Cissie Rice from Waterbury, CT

    This looks like a delicious meal. It is not only a soup but it has it's meat and potatoes and vegetables too. It is worth the time to cut everything up and sit back and enjoy - yummy!

    WARMING AND COMFORT DELUXE

    CHERIE LONAS from RAPID CITY, SD

    Talk about comfort food! I am not a stew/soup eater, but guess who went back for seconds! I have done this stew with garden fresh tomatoes, chicken, and I sprinkle ground cinnamon, rather then using the stick.....EXCELLENT!

    Pumpkin Pork Stew

    Alice Keeney from STRONGSVILLE, OH

    I also made a few changes, substituting rosemary for the basil and, as we don't use wine, tried apple juice instead. I also doubled the garlic for a little extra flavor. This was pretty good and I might play around with other variations next time.

    Something Different

    heather green from national park, nj

    I made this recipe with some of the substitutions suggested from others and some of my own. I used only a tsp of oil, one pound of pork, and two potatoes to make a lower calorie meal. My husband doesn’t like green beans so I used bean sprouts. I used rosemary as suggested and replaced the wine with fat free evaporated milk. Added the bean sprouts and milk in the last five minutes of cooking. It made for a unique dinner that is good enough to make again but not good enough to become a family regular. The leftovers tasted better after all the flavors had more time to meld. Next time I think I’ll use my extra can of pumpkin try the brownies though.

    A nice hearty stew

    This is really super for a cold evening. It's worthy of Sunday dinner! It was tasty and hearty. I'd make it again.

    Jerry Rosen from SWAMPSCOTT, MA

    I made this recipe, and because we don't eat pork, I substituted beef. It was excellent

    pumpkin stew

    Carine Nadel from LAGUNA HILLS, CA

    This was very easy and a good way for me to use up the remains of a huge pork shoulder roast, so my family (who hates leftovers)would enjoy our economic week!

    Great with a few substitutions

    Greta from TN

    This is a great recipe, but due to what I had available these are my changes: no potatoes, cinnamon or green beans; libby's easy pumpkin pie mix instead of plain pumpkin; cream heated up (so it doesn't curdle) added at the very end instead of white wine; onion cut in larger pieces; thyme instead of basil (like the woman ahead of me suggested)! It turned out great, more of a soup than stew!

    Review for Pumpkin Pork Stew

    Sandy Vartorella from Durham, NC, USA

    A good stew, easy to make. Very mildly flavored....I may adjust the seasoning a bit next time. Will also try substituting rosemary for the basil....just to see how it tastes, as rosemary goes well with pork.
