This recipe is from the West African Region of Ghana. Adapted from Traditional African Cooking. I bet this would be a tasty vegetarian dish if you omitted the beef.

Thanks for posting this simple recipe. I didn't have eggplant so substituted swede instead, it didn't affect the flavour at all. The sauce came out nice and thick, mine took longer than 20 mins but that's because I chopped the squash into quite chunky cubes. Made for ZWT4.

We enjoyed this steaw,it remainded me alot taste wise of a dish our South African house keeper cooks for herself. I followed the recipe except I left the meat out and added some minced garlic and 1 large potato cut into quarters. This an easy robust and rustic stew. Thank you for sharing Nick's Mom.
