Ok, I am claiming this recipe. Its ours, from Sierra Leone. Oh whatever, it's a West African dish and it is yummy.
This is another dish reserved for special occasions and holidays in Sierra Leone. Most homes would have this dish on Christmas day, with salad. You can use any meat of your choice, however this is my beef version. So why not cook this for that special person in your life? Come on, it's valentine's day, try something different.
The ingredients I used are:
|In a sauce pan, brown beef, then add 2 tbs tomato paste and fry for 5 minutes|
|Add half of the sliced onions and chopped spring onions and cook for 5 minutes|
|Then add half of the blended tomatoes, onions and chili cook for 10 minutes on medium heat|
|Then add chopped capsicum and cook for another 5 minutes|
|That's the stew done.|
|Scoop any excess oil from the stew into a sauce pan and use it to fry the rest of the sliced onions and carrots for 3 minutes|
|Then add the rest of the tomato, onions and chili blend, tomato paste, thyme, curry powder and stock cubes and fry for about 5 minutes.|
|Then wash and add the rice|
|Then add 4 cups water and salt to taste, pop a sheet of foil over the pot and cover. Turn the heat down the the lowest setting and let it cook for 12 minutes,|
|Add the cabbage, mix to combine, cover and cook for 7 minutes or till the water is completely absorbed.|
|There you have it. Mouth watering Jollof Rice and Beef Stew.|
