This was very good. It gets better as it sits as the flavors start to blend together.

This is an easy and delicious stew. Costco and Trader Joes both have peeled and cubed bnut squash, so this was a very quick recipe to put together. I ended up adding more chicken broth (even tho' I like thick soups and stews). I agree with other reviewers, it is better the next day.

This recipe earns it five stars. My boyfriend ate winter squash (I used butternut) and enjoyed it! I basically left him the recipe and the ingredients with minimal expectations, and he transformed all of the above into a delicious meal. The only downside to the meal is a lack of leftovers...

Simply divine! Rich, flavorful, and fairly easy. I subbed ham stock for the chicken stock, added a tsp ground New Mexico chiles, and used "Mexican" stewed tomatoes--and everyone scraped their bowls clean. Winner, winner pork dinner.

This was a great recipe everyday, but being an opponent of "grade inflation", I find it very hard to give it a 5! I used my crockpot after browning and seasoning the pork. Deglazed the skillet with chicken stock. I also used canned diced tomatoes because I don't like stewed tomatoes very much so they weren't in my pantry. Could be because of crockpot (no steam escaping) or diced tomatoes (nothing to thicken them), it seemed a little juicier than expected, so served over couscous. Didn't want to lose that seasoned broth.

This one would get six stars if I could do it. The picture is misleading-- mine looked more like a chunk stew, but it doesn't matter because it was AMAZING! It was a awesome alternative to traditional chili, and helps utilize winter vegetables. I substituted the pork shoulder for lean pork tenderloins (it was on sale). I served it with boxed corn muffins. And it makes you kitchen smell soooo good! Definitely will make again!!!

Great winter stew. Don't worry too much about exact quantities of pork or squash. You can adjust the amount of liquid with a splash of water or chicken stock in the end. This recipie was better the 2nd night...great leftovers!

This was so good! Pretty easy (hardest part, peeling the butternut squash!) & so yummy! This is a new autumn/winter go-to & company dish!

Fabulous dish. I used Pork loin instead of shoulder because that is what I had on hand. A bit of work to peel and cut up that butternut squash but worth it in the end. And as the others have said - even better the next day.
