PUMPKIN STEW

2 pounds beef stew meat, cut into 1-inch cubes
3 tablespoons cooking oil, divided
1 cup water
3 large potatoes, peeled and cut into 1-inch cubes
4 medium carrots, sliced

Spoon stew into pumpkin and replace the top. Brush outside of pumpkin with remaining oil. Bake at 325 degrees for 2 hours or just until the pumpkin is tender (do not overbake).
