I've had several requests from people for my recipes. Apparently some people think I'm a pretty good cook. You be the judge.
I discovered this recipe in a Taste of Home Magazine.
West African Beef Stew (ignore if your allergic to peanuts)
1.5 lb of beef top sirloin in 1 inch cubes (I used whatever I had on hand. I can get whole shoulders for pretty cheap)
2 med onions sliced
2 tsp canola oil, but most any veggie oil will do though probably not olive oil
1 garlic clove, minced
1 cup water
4 tsps beef bouillon granules
4 cups shredded cabbage
2 med green pepper julienned ( I just sliced)
1 med zucchini cut into .25 inch slices
3 tbsp creamy peanut butter
cayenne pepper to taste (I can't handle much heat so I let Joseph add his in later)
Hot cooked rice (I used brown rice)
1. In a dutch oven, brown the steak and onions in oil; add the garlic and cook 1 minute more. Add the water and bouillon; bring to a boil. Reduce heat; cover and simmer for 40-45 minutes till meat is tender.
2. Stir in cabbage, green peppers and zucchini. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat, cover and simmer for 8-10 minutes or until the vegetables are tender. Just before serving stir in the peanut butter and sprinkle with cayenne. Serve over rice.
Joseph and I enjoyed this (please note I strongly don't like cabbage unless it is in slaw and on bbq). Kids were a little stand offish, but that is kids the first time a new dish is served. I made brown rice to go with it. The brown rice added a whole new texture.
