    Taste of Home. Beautiful presentation. Excellent for fall celebrations. I usually add bay leaf and dried thyme or marjoram to the stew. You can add whatever spices/herbs you prefer.

      Made this last weekend for a family get-together. You are so right, it makes a spectacular presentation. The stew was simple but very hearty. I didn't add any herbs but might consider adding some thyme and marjoram next time. Thanks for a splendid and festive meal for our family.

      I have always wanted to make beef stew in a pumpkin but have suffered from serious pumpkin phobia. With the help of my best friend, we conquered the big pumpkin together. I can't begin to describe how beautiful this looked and how delicious it smelled. The taste did not disappoint us either. We were all just amazed. We are going to make this a yearly tradition. Thanks so much.

      I highly recommend this recipe, not only is it brautiful (The oiled pumpkin appeared glazed into a the burnt sienna crayon colored) The flavor-Delicious-earthy and rustic. I added more stew beef than recipe stated, added 2 bay leaves, 1 tsp. ea, marjoram and thyme. Instead of ading the tomatoes and beef granules later I added them in the 1st 2 hours of simmering and added perhaps another cup of water due to the addtion of extra beef. In the initial step I ommited salt, thinking 2 Tbsp. of granules would be enough, it wasn't so, added that and a good enough amt. of gravy master since I prefer a darker stew. Only complaint I would say that there wasn't rich broth and cutting the pumpkin was a pain next time I'll take my DHs Sawzall (sp) to it. Fantastic recipe
