Original recipe yields 4 servings
- Heat 1 tablespoon oil in skillet over medium high heat. Add pumpkin and saute until light golden brown, about 5 minutes
- Heat 2 tablespoons oil in a stock pot over medium high heat. Add onions and garlic and saute over medium-high heat until golden, about 5 minutes. Stir in tumeric. Add beef and saute until brown, about 5 minutes. Add water, salt, and pepper; bring to a boil, reduce heat, and simmer until beef is slightly tender, about 30 minutes.
- Stir pumkin, prunes, vinegar, sugar, salt, and cinnamon to stock pot and simmer until beef and pumpkin are tender, about 45 minutes. Garnish with saffron.
- Cook's Notes:
- Eight 2-inch cubes of pumkin is enough for 4 servings, but you can add more if you like.
- I like to substitute yellow squash for the pumpkin. If you like more tasty stew you can add more sugar or vinegar.
