Stews are very common in Africa. This stew is served in layers, with the meat and onion on the bottom and the vegetables on the top. This recipe is from South Africa, and comes from "Classic International Recipes". The original recipe calls for lamb, but it isn't very common where I live, so I've substituted beef successfully.
