  1. Heat 2 tablespoons oil in a large saucepan over medium-high heat. Place beef in a saucepan and cook until evenly brown.

  2. Mix in the water, potatoes, carrots, green bell pepper, garlic, onion, salt, and pepper. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer for approximately 2 hours.

  3. Dissolve the bouillon into the beef mixture. Stir in the tomatoes.

  4. Pre-heat oven to 325°F. Cut the top off the pumpkin and remove seeds and pulp.

  5. Place the pumpkin in a heavy baking pan. Fill the pumpkin with the beef mixture. Brush outside of the pumpkin with the remaining oil. Bake in the preheated oven for 2 hours or until tender.

  6. Serve the stew from the pumpkin, scraping out some of the pumpkin meat with each serving.
