Pumpkin and Lamb Stew Recipe

Serves 4

What a seasonal beauty! This pumpkin and lamb stew recipe can easily be made from the leftovers of your carved pumpkins so nothing will go to waste this Halloween. It’s also very simple to make, but tastes spookily delicious.

My Dad has grown me some small pumpkins this year as I wanted to get creative in the kitchen with them. He's had a really good harvest and now we have pumpkins coming out of our ears. So hopefully over the coming weeks, I can share some of my favourite recipes with you.

This recipe would work easily as well in a slow cooker, so you could come home to a lovely home-cooked stew without having to wait for it. I would still brown the meat and onions off first and then add all the other ingredients. Let me know what you think if you try the slow cooked version.

  1. Wow! I would say your dad had huge success with the pumpkins! Look how huge those leaves are? Amazing!

    This stew sounds really delish. The lamb would be perfect with the pumpkin. And talk about a meal packed with nutrition! I can't even imagine how good the house would smell after cooking for the day in the slow cooker! YUM!

      He did indeed, maybe too much success! We're still eating pumpkins 3 months later. But I can't say I'm bored of them yet. I've also got a delicious risotto recipe coming soon.

    • Sally Sally says:

      Hope you enjoy it Kellie. We've had it a few times with our mountain of pumpkins. It's really delicious.

  4. I'm going to try this in my slow cooker. I've been looking for a simple casserole recipe and was just saying yesterday how much I fancied some lamb, so this is perfect! Thank you for sharing. Alison x #AnythingGoes

    • Sally Sally says:

      Ooh, yes the lamb would be lovely in the slow cooker Alison, I wouldn't cook the pumpkin for the same amount of time as it tends to go very smushy if you overcook it. I'd love to know what you think.
