How to make it

  • Cut the meat, potatoes, carrots, pepper, garlic, and onion and set aside.
  • In a large roaster or Dutch oven, brown meat in 2 tablespoons of oil.
  • Add stock, potatoes, carrots, bell peppers, garlic, onion, spices, and salt then cover the pot and simmer for two hours.
  • While cooking, brew the coffee.
  • At the end of the two hours, stir in the tomatoes with the juice, then add the coffee and stir gently to incorporate.
  • To prepare the pumpkin, wash the outside thoroughly then cut a large circle around the top stem, about 6 to 8 inches.
  • Remove the top and set aside until ready to bake.
  • Scoop out the seeds and loose fibers and discard. (Seeds can be dried or roasted for other recipes, if you desire.)
  • Clean the bottom of the top of any seeds or loose fibers, too.
  • In a shallow but sturdy baking pan, place the pumpkin in the center, then carefully spoon in the stew.
  • Replace with the top and brush all the outside of the pumpkin with one tablespoon of oil.
  • Bake for one hour, 45 minutes to two hours at 325ºF. or just until pumpkin is tender (easily pierced with a fork.)
  • To serve, scoop out some of the pumpkin meat along with a hefty serving of the stew.
