Trouble codes?

Does the car give any indication it is about to stall? Such as the idle suddenly gets rough or really slow.

Does the issue occur when you are off the gas or on the gas? If it happens while you are accelerating, does it feel like suddenly there is no power for a second before the engine stalls? Or does it feel like someone turned off the key?

Some other areas to look are the ignition coil, the fuel injectors, and the torque converter clutch.
