From the Feb/Mar 2008 issue of TOH. Submitted by Heather Ewald, who received the recipe from her aunt Linda Klassen who was a missionary in Nigeria for 45 years.


  1. Cut the beef into 1/2 inch cubes.
  2. Chop the onion and peppers.
  3. In a large saucepan, combine the beef, onions, peppers, undrained tomatoes, curry powder and salt.
  4. Bring to a boil, reduce heat and simmer until meat is tender, about 1 1/2 to 2 hours.
  5. About 45 minutes to a half hour before ready to serve, prepare the rice according to package directions.
  6. Serve the beef over the rice and top with some raisins.

This is an excellent dish, and very easy. I did brown the meat and vegetables in a little oil before adding the tomatoes. I used African Curry Powder. Didn't add the raisins because my kid would have had the snit fit of the century if I had! I bet it's even better with them, though. Thanks for posting!
