    Charliecooks's Note:

    This is an old family favourite, and please forgive me if the quantities are not very precise - it's just one of those dishes we cook with no exact ingredient measures. I have also adapted it for the pressure cooker, which makes a somewhat fresher-flavoured stew in half the time of the original. To give the whole affair a Cape Malay twist, steam some cinnamon stick, cardamom, cloves, garlic, green ginger and chillies with the meat and serve the tomato and onion salad chopped into cubes, also with a touch of green chillie.

    My Private Note

    Ingredients:

    Servings:

    Units: US | Metric

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Steam the lamb neck, onion and spices (salt sparingly) with 1/2 cup of water for half an hour or until very tender.
    2. 2
      (In the pressure cooker I use, this means that there is still a good bit of juice left; otherwise add another half cup before the next step - the stew should end up moist but without runny juices).
    3. 3
      Add the potatoes and beans and steam for another 5 minutes, by which time the potatoes should be falling apart.
    4. 4
      Taste for seasoning (quite peppery is good) and mash the potatoes, beans and a fair-sized lump of butter with a potato masher.
    5. 5
      It doesn't matter if some bits of the meat come off the bone and get mixed into the mashed potatoes and beans.
    6. 6
      Serve with glazed carrots and a sweet and sour tomato and onion salad.
