Make this the day before you need it and re-heat right before serving time. Thanks to Susan Branch ("Autumn") for this wonderful recipe. On the day of serving, prepare your "serving bowl" by baking a hollowed out pumpkin (remove seeds & stringy gunk, scrape as dry as possible); rub outside with veg oil and roast for 20 minutes; fill with hot stew, set lid slightly cocked, and serve! COOKING TIME does NOT include overnight sitting.

This is really good! I used chicken instead of beef because that's what I had on hand. Nice blend of flavors and a good way to enjoy fresh fall produce!
