DescriptionEdit

Ingredients Edit

  • one pound meat (beef, lamb, or goat) or chicken
  • cayenne pepper or red pepper
  • one cup palm oil, or any cooking oil
  • two or three tomatoes, peeled (if desired) and chopped
  • one chile pepper, cleaned and chopped
  • one onion, finely chopped
  • one-half cup ogbono, crushed
  • two Maggi® cubes dissolved in water, or a spoonful
  • one dozen okra pods, ends removed, whole or chopped
  • one piece dried, salted, or smoked fish
  • a large bunch spinach leaves
  • salt


Directions Edit

  1. Rub the meat with the cayenne pepper and let it stand for about an hour.
  2. In a large pot, bring a few cups of water to a boil. Add the meat and cook it for several minutes. Reduce heat, cover, and simmer.
  3. In a skillet, heat most of the oil and fry the tomato, chile pepper, and onion until they are tender.
  4. Add the fried vegetables and the Maggi® cube water to the meat. Cover and continue to simmer on low heat.
  5. Heat the remaining oil in the skillet, stir in the ogbono, and fry it for a few minutes, stirring constantly to form a smooth paste.
  6. Add the ogbono paste to the meat and vegetable mixture. Stir to avoid forming lumbs.
  7. Add the okra and dried fish, shrimp, or prawns (if desired). Cover and cook a few minutes more. Add water if needed to obtain the desired consistency.
  8. Add spinach leaves or other greens. Adjust seasoning. Cover and cook until all is tender.
