Stove top Bread and Beef mince stew.

I do not bake much here as I have a temperamental oven that I am yet to fully understand.

But there are times when the bread craving kicks in so bad and you just have to give in. Lucky for me I came across a simple but tasty recipe from A Kitchen in Uganda, find the recipe here. She has other amazing recipes that I have been trying out bit by bit over the years.

I did not change the recipe much; used grated carrot, onion and some chives as I didn’t have green pepper at the time.

Steaming the bread
Final results and yes, I burnt some a bit, but not bad for a first try.

The bread is quite fluffy and delicious, and a hit with the kids. I will be sure to try it out again too and be more attentive. LOL.

We had them for a midweek dinner with some mince meat stew.

l learnt a tip the other day, add a tablespoon of water in your mince before you cook, mixing well. The mince absorbs the water as it breaks down hence no big chunks when cooking. I tried it in this recipe and it works.

I didn’t use many spices here just I tsp ginger and garlic, crushed, 1/4 tsp turmeric, 1 tsp Dhana jeera powder, salt and pepper to taste.

Fry onions well, add ginger garlic and spices mix well then add tomatoes and cover and cook on low, then add the mince and cover and let it cook on medium low heat. Add your peas last. Check for seasoning and serve hot.
I added some peas and one chopped potato to bulk it up a bit.

This is a perfect midweek supper meal that’s quite easy to put together and a pleasant change from usual pasta and rice for the mince meat stew.

Definitely worth a try!
