In a world today that is full of “fancy” foods and an appeal for eating something different, It is always a welcome change to eat some “vintage” Nigerian food. Rice and stew is the typical go-to meal for most Nigerians. I remember growing up as a child in Port-Harcourt and eating Rice and Stew with big pieces of chicken or meat every Sunday*big grin* It felt like a family routine but as I grew up and started to socialize with other people, I realized it seemed to be a country-wide routine and it is something I have incorporated into my own household. Here is a simple recipe for Stew! Hope you enjoy and check out the printable recipe at the bottom!
-Boil meat and chicken in separate pots with spices and diced onions.
-Allow to boil for 20-30mintues or until soft.
