“The Beef”

Once upon a time #KoiKoiUg had Ugandans celebrate food with the rest of the world at the World Wide Instameet #wwin14_Kampala and organized a potluck. Off to the market I went and got all that I needed to cook beef to share with everyone in attendance. It got people smiling so I guess it was good. This dish has no name and I’m going to do my best to remember what I used when preparing it.


  • Beef
  • Mixed herbs
  • Curry
  • Royco
  • Salt
  • Chili powder
  • Turmeric
  • Onions
  • Garlic
  • Tomatoes
  • Carrots
  • Green pepper

The beef:

  • Cut the beef into cubes, add onions, garlic, salt, mixed herbs, curry and water and boil for 10 minutes
  • In a separate pan, brown the onions and garlic
  • Add the finely chopped tomatoes and the rest of the spices and boil for two minutes then add the rest of the vegetables
  • Add the beef with its stock to the vegetable sauce and boil for 20 minutes or till the beef is tender.
