This is a very simple recipe from Botswana in Africa. It is often served with a cornmeal porridge, but polenta will also go well. Usually it is reserved for special occasions.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat oven to 300 degrees F.
  2. In a Dutch oven, heat the oil over medium high heat and brown the beef on all sides, about 10 minutes.
  3. Season with salt, then cover with water; cover Dutch oven and bring contents to a boil.
  4. Place Dutch oven in the pre-heated oven for 2 1/2 to 3 hours; meat should be very tender.
  5. Shred beef and season with additional salt, if needed.
  6. Liquid can be reduced, or thickened, to your liking by boiling it down further on the stove-top.
