How to Make It

Step 1    

Slice the bottom off of the acorn squash and then cut in half. Scoop out the seeds, and then slice into wedges. Peel the wedges, and then cut into 1/2-inch pieces.

Step 2    

Heat a large saucepan over medium-high heat. Add the oil, and then stir in the onions and garlic. Cook for about 1 minute or until soft. Stir in the ground pork and cook for 3 minutes, or until browned. Stir in the acorn squash, Worcestershire sauce, balsamic vinegar, salt, and pepper.

Step 3    

Add chicken stock and bring up to a gentle boil, then reduce heat to a simmer. Simmer for 15 minutes or until acorn squash is tender. Taste for seasoning and serve.
