This Nigerian beef stew is full of flavor, simple to make and very delicious! So, get ready to lick your fingers…lol. Jokes apart this is a very good stew/soup after a plate you will want to go back and eat more and more, just like Buka Stew Recipe
Use any part of the meats you have or like, grilled or just boiled trust me you will love the stew, boil your meats with any seasonings of your choice. let’s get started!
- Meat (assorted meat or any part of your choice)
- 2 Red bell peppers (tatashe)
- 4 Habanero/Rodo
- 4 Tomatoes
- 1.5 Onions (divided)
- Olive oil/Palm oil (or any oil of your choice)
- Knorr bouillon powder/cubes
- Salt to taste
- Clean the meat and boil with curry, thyme, ginger, and salt. Boil until the meats soft.
I cooked beef separately from the intestines or tripes.
- You can grill the meat or use as is.
Remove the seeds of the red bell peppers, rinse with habanero, and one onion. Blend all together.
- Place a saucepan/pot over medium high heat and add oil. Allow to heat up.
- Chop the remaining half of the onion, one teaspoon of thyme and sauté in the oil until the onion is fragrant.
- Add the blended pepper mixture, season with knorr and salt.
- Cook the pepper until thickens and the oil floats.
- Add the boiled meats and mix.
- Add some liquid; beef stock or water and mix.
- Continue to cook until the meats absorbs the liquids.
- Check the season and readjust if necessary
- Turn off the heat.
I later realized the oil was too much, you can scoop out the excess oil and reuse later if that happens to you too.
Serve and enjoy.
