There are so many recipes for Nigerian tomato stew, but I love how easy and tasty my method is.
In this post, I only concentrated on the actual tomato stew. I skipped the steps on how to make the meat stock. This is mainly because I think everyone has their own way of doing this, but let me know if you want me to include it and I’ll make an update to the post. Soooooo let’s get into the recipe already!
what you’ll need:
8 large tomatoes
2 large onions
4 red bell pepper
4 Scotch bonnet
2 Knorr cubes
all purpose seasoning
• Blend the tomatoes, onions, bell peppers and scotch bonnet in a blender until a smooth mixture is obtained. Now heat some vegetable oil in a pot and add the blended mixture when the oil is hot. Allow to cook for about 40 minutes.
• Add the tomato puree, mix thoroughly and allow to cook for another 15-20 minutes or until you get rid of all/most of the water in the mixture. Add the seasonings (any seasoning of your choice or those listed above) and and meat stock, then allow to simmer at low heat for 5 minutes.
• Then you can choose to add your fried or grilled meat in the stew or serve separately. There you have it! Enjoy cravers
