Pumpkin Pork Stew

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!

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!

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

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.

I have to admit, I was somewhat skeptical at first but my partner and I thought this was so delicious. I will definitely make again and pass it along to family!!
