Slowcooker African Peanut, Beef and Sweet Potato Stew

6:00:00 AM

Have you ever heard of peanut stew? In Africa, this stew is often "groundnut stew" since peanuts grow in the ground. You might think it sounds a little odd, but for any kid who loves peanut butter (or any adult, for that matter) will enjoy this stew! My kids all loved it! And it's a filling meal for dinner, and since it's cooked in a crockpot, it's a perfect weeknight meal!

We eat it served over rice, but it's good just by itself!

Here's how you make it:

1 lb stew beef
32 ounces beef broth
2 medium sweet potatoes, peeled and diced
1 15 ounce can of diced tomatoes (not drained)
5 cloves garlic, minced fine
1/2 teaspoon powdered ginger
1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1 teaspoon paprika
1/2 cup peanut butter
optional: rice, cooked

Brown the stew beef in a skillet set on high. You want to brown the outside quickly to make a yummy fond (brown crust). Place meat in slowcooker. Use the beef broth to rinse (or deglaze) the yummy brown bits left in the pan into the slow cooker. Pour remaining broth into slowcooker, followed by sweet potatoes, garlic, spices, and peanut butter. Cook in slowcooker for 4 hours on high or 6 hours on low.

The meat should be done through and the sweet potatoes should be tender. You can serve as is or serve over rice. Makes 8-10 servings
