African beef stew – the details…
When it comes to African beef recipes, it is all about spices. So the first thing to do is season the beef with curry powder, paprika, a generous amount of black pepper and cinnamon.
Yes, you may be surprised about cinnamon. However, cinnamon is extremely aromatic and has a sweet and savoury flavour that sets this stew apart.
So, once the beef is generously seasoned, it is seared. The beef flavour will intensify by searing the meat, giving the stew a rich and flavourful sauce.
Now add the onions, garlic, bell peppers, tomatoes, tomato paste and coconut milk. Slowly simmer the stew beef for about an hour and a half.
Now add the remaining vegetables such as carrots, potatoes and cabbage, and finish cooking the stew until the meat is fork tender and the vegetables just right. The reason the vegetables are added at the end as not to overcook them. And that is it for this African beef stew recipe. Nothing to it…right?
my recommendation to serve with this African beef stew…
As I mentioned earlier, add a rolls such as this gluten-free butter roll for dipping in the stew, or serve over rice. But my favourite way to serve this hearty meal is with gluten-free naan. The naan is a leavened flatbread very popular in Asia, Indonesia, Myanmar and the Caribbean.
This flatbread is excellent to serve with this delicious stew because you can scoop up the thick sauce filled with tender African flavoured beef and veggies.
Another favourite beef stew recipe of mine is the Instant Pot Spiced Beef Stew with Mung Beans. A little different but ever so good! Enjoy 🙂
