Pork and pumpkin stew

05 October 2023

When the leaves start to fall and the air gets cooler, it's time to turn to comfort foods to warm our hearts and stomachs. One of the joys of the fall season is the variety of fall vegetables available, and what's better than incorporating them into a stew? Here's a pork and pumpkin stew recipe that perfectly embodies the flavors and aromas of fall.


  • 1 tablespoon of olive oil
  • 1 1/2 cup chopped onion (about 1 large onion)
  • 2 cloves of garlic, chopped
  • 2 pounds of pork cubes
  • Salt and black pepper, to taste
  • 1 tablespoon of tomato paste
  • 2 1/2 cups beef broth
  • 1/4 cup red wine
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1 sprig of fresh thyme
  • 1 bay leaf
  • 4 cups pumpkins, peeled and cut into 1-inch cubes
  • 1/2 cup pumpkin seeds, toasted (for garnish)


Step 1: In a large saucepan, sauté onion in oil over medium heat until soft, about 5 minutes. Add garlic and cook 1 minute, until fragrant.

Step 2: Add the pork cubes and 1 teaspoon of salt and brown for 5 to 7 minutes. Add the tomato paste and cook for 1 minute.

Step 3: Add the rest of the ingredients except the pumpkin cubes, cover and cook over low heat until the meat is tender, about 1 1/2 hours.

Step 4: Add the pumpkin and cook for an additional 30 to 35 minutes, until the pumpkin cubes are tender.

Step 5: Taste and adjust spices if necessary, discard bay leaves and serve. For a touch of crunch, sprinkle each serving with toasted pumpkin seeds.
