DIRECTIONS

  • Whisk together peanut butter and stock and reserve.

  • Heat the oil in a large saucepan over medium heat.
  • Brown the meat well on all sides; do not crowd the meat; saute in batches if necessary.
  • Remove meat and keep warm.
  • Add the onion, garlic, peppers, and carrots to the pan and saute until the onions are translucent.
  • Add the peanut butter and broth mixture, scraping all the brown bits up from the bottom and sides of the pan.
  • Return the reserved meat (and any juices) to the pan with the tomatoes and their liquid, the thyme and bay leaf.
