Kenyan Beef Stew

We went to Kenya for 10 days Safari trip during CNY break and we had really really fabulous time and great experience with not only all those animals that we never saw but also lots of delicious food made by local chefs at the camp we stayed. We couldn't feel more flattered with the way they treated us and it, of course, is one of the best trip I've ever had !!

Back home in HK, I have still been missing lots of things in Kenya especially a few dishes of local food that I've found they are so simple to make , yet unbelievably I decided to make Kenyan Saturday dinner to satisfy my craving !

I chose this beef stew as a main course along with this cabbage stew and chapati..

The recipe 

 vegetable oil
1large onion, chopped
1 1/2 lbs beef, cubed
1inch ginger root, minced or grated
4cloves garlic, minced
1Tbsp paprika
1Tbsp curry powder
2 large tomatoes, chopped
2 cups beef broth, as needed
Cut the onion, tomato beef into average hunks. Next, brown the onions in oil over medium heat. Then increase heat to high, add the beef and brown. (Do it in batches if necessary).
Next, pile on the ginger, garlic, paprika and curry. Sweet paprika will work too if you don’t like it spicy. Now, add tomatoes. Splash on the stock. Season with salt. Simmer uncovered until thick and pasty and all broth has reduced away. This took about an hour.
Serve with fresh chapati. If you’re feeling particularly traditional, use pieces of the chapati to pick up the food instead of silverware.
