  • Nigerian beef stew always comes in handy especially when you want to conserve energy. This is because, it can be prepared in advance, refrigerated and used for days with a variety of meals. If prepared well, it’d still retain that newly prepared stew taste. Another name for the Nigerian beef stew is simply tomato stew - Since I have demands to cater to a large family, I love preparing beef tomato stew in advance for the main meal which could be; Plain Rice dishes, Beans, Plantain(Boiled/Fried), Yam, Okra soup *Smiles*…..The list goes on and on. One good thing I love about Tomato stews in general is the fact that it can be changed to something different such as vegetable stew, Curried stew or cabbage stew. This can be done by simply adding the various leaves. •Servings:     12
