Peanut Stew

READY IN: 55mins
Recipe by Lois Pearson

African dish my brother taught me to make, adjust the peppers to how hot you like it. I have made the recipe with firm tofu instead of beef and it was great.

Wow, what a treat. I used flank steak which was so tough the kids could hardly eat it. This dish made the meat incredibly tender. The only thing I would change next time would be to reduce the peanut butter to 1 1/2 - 1 cup. Even my husband, who does not like peanut butter other than in cookies enjoyed this stew.
