Pumpkin potjie

Recipe from: 29 june 2010

Ingredients 9
Servings 4
Time 25 mins


  • 1
    mutton rib, sawn into portions
  • 4
    onions, chopped
  • 10
    baby potatoes
  • 1
    medium green pumpkin (‘boerpampoen’, but hubbard squash works well too)
  • 1
    soy sauce
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 1
    ground cinnamon
  • 25
    dried mixed herbs
  • 1
    shake gravy powder


2 hours
Brown the mutton and onions in a warm, greased pot until the juice runs from the meat.
Pack the potatoes on top, then add the peeled, cubed pumpkin.
Add the soy sauce. (Sometimes, if I get hold of a big pumpkin, I place half of it in the pot, hollow side down.)
Leave to simmer till the potatoes are done.
Add salt, cinnamon, herbs and gravy powder.
Stir and serve with rice.
