Have you ever looked at a recipe, raised an eyebrow at the odd combination of ingredients, then decided it might be worth a try?
Well, usually I have a pretty good instinct as to whether or not it will be good, but sometimes I'm wrong and it ends up being a GIANT fail. I always figure that it's worth the risk, because we've come up with some amazing family recipes by trying the suspiciously odd ones, tweaking them a little and WOW! - no regrets ;)
This pastured pork and pumpkin recipe started as I was searching for some new recipes to try. I had a feeling that our pork roasts cut into stew meat could taste amazing with some pumpkins we had grown this year.
After looking through the ideas, I just decided to throw them all out and just have fun with it. (that is usually how I do my best cooking... PLUS~ it's more fun that way!)
Long story short ~ this stew ended up being a super easy "from scratch" recipe and everyone LOVED it, so it will be added to our list of favorites.
I hope you'll try it. You won't be disappointed with the crisp fall colors and intensely delicious flavors coming from this one of a kind dish.
Make sure you don't leave anything out....
I'll have a printable version of the recipe along with some tips below, but first, I wanted to make sure that no matter how strange the seasoning combination sounds, you won't leave anything out. :) It really needs everything to get this amazing cozy stew flavor.
