A basic stew from the Congo. Sorry for the vague directions. Posted by request from the book 'Best of Regional African Cooking'.

  4. Simmer until tender and nicely cooked.
  5. Serve with boiled rice or fried plantain.
  6. VARIATION: You can mix 1/4-1/3 cup peanut butter with a little boiling water until smooth and add to stew 15-20 minutes before it is done.

Crazy simple & delicious! I used beef & about 1 heaping tsp crushed red pepper flakes. What I would do differently next time is to start earlier....it only cooked 1.5 hours at a simmer. I think closer to 3 hours at the barest simmer or in the oven would make it more tender. I served it over Annacia's Nshima which worked really well. Made for I've saved all these recipes & African Tag 3/12.
