Minced beef stew is very adaptable; you can pair it with spaghetti, plantain, boiled/fried yam, or rice. They can even be used for pie filling or stuffed peppers. Corned beef can also be used for this recipe.

The good news is that it is affordable, healthy, quick, and super easy to make. Try using the best mince you can get or it could end up being greasy.

I came up with this recipe years ago when my kids were much younger and would fuss about chewing meat whenever I make chicken stew, beef stew, and even fish stew.

I introduced this stew to them and it became an instant hit.

If you cannot afford a steak mince, then firstly, cook the meat until tender, then strain it before adding to the rest of the ingredients according to the recipe.
