It is believed that peanuts were initially introduced to Africa by Portuguese explorers in the 16th century. Peanuts are very similar to the native indigenous bambarra groundnut grown in central Africa. Peanuts are still a food crop in Africa and America. Today peanuts are used for oil, soaps, candles and margarine.

PEANUT BUTTER STEW
1 pound stew meat, 2 tablespoons oil, 1 onion diced, 1 tomato diced, 1 quart water, 1 tablespoon chicken bouillon, 3 teaspoons creamy peanut butter. Season meat with salt and pepper. Add oil to dutch oven, add meat and sear for 2 minutes. Remove meat set aside. Add onion to oven and cook for 2 minutes, add tomatoes, cook for 2 minutes. Add meat back to the oven. Add water and chicken bouillon. Bring to a boil then lower heat to a simmer. Continue to simmer until the liquid is reduced by approximately 25 percent and thickened. Add peanut butt, simmer for another 30 minutes; the liquid should be the consistency of gravy. If the liquid is not thick enough add 1/2 teaspoon of baking powder. Stir in baking powder. Cook for another 15 minutes. Serve over rice.
Y’all will pick the winner. I tried this recipe, I loved it. Are you going to submit your recipe?
