This is a recipe my husband makes from where he grew up in Western Tanzania in East Africa. You can use chicken or pork and it's a great crockpot dish. We think of it as "comfort food"! Great one-pot meal.

This recipe worked really well. I did make a number of changes - most because of what I had available (or not). I used a can of diced tomatoes instead of 2 tomatoes which worked out fine and was cerainly easier (and cheaper). Chunky Jif peanut butter instead of no-sugar. The Chunky worked out fine although the chunks of peanuts were very noticable. No peppers on hand, so substituted mushrooms. I more than doubled the garlic. The principal change that I made though was in spice - I added 3 chopped dried spicy peppers because the recipe seemed rather bland without. I did use the regular pot - started out on medium until everything boiled for a couple of minutes and then turned down to lowest heat on stove. Oh, and to up the vegetable content - I added a pound of frozen spinach at the end. This turned out very well. I would definitely make again, although would probably use less peanut butter not so much because I didn't like the taste, but for health reasons.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Put pork ribs, onion, peppers, tomatoes, potatoes, garlic, ginger and 3 cups of water in the crockpot.
  2. With one more cup of warm water, mix in the peanut butter and the turmeric until it forms a paste.
  3. Add this to the crockpot.
  4. Cook on low for 3 1/2 to 4 hours (longer is OK) or cook in a regular pot on slow heat until the pork falls off the bone.
  5. Add the cilantro shortly before serving.
