Here's the recipie as promised. For 4 good servings (use half quantities for 2 servings): 1lb (450g) stewing beef, cut into cubes 6 tablespoons smooth peanut butter 2 medium onions, roughly chopped 14oz (400g) tin of chopped tomatoes 3 fresh chillies (the rounded triangular ones, not the long thin lethal sort!) 1lb (450g) carrots, cut into chunks Pinch of mixed herbs 1 inch (2.5cm) piece of grated fresh root ginger (or 1 heaped tsp dried ginger) Salt & fresh ground black pepper This is all cooked on top of the stove in a very heavy saucepan with a tight fitting lid, or a flameproof casserole (I guess you could also use your slow cooker!). De-seed the chillies, chop finely and mix with the peanut butter, ginger, herbs, tomatoes, carrots and onions. Mix well. Place the meat in the saucepan or casserole, then add the vegetable mixture, salt and pepper. Mix well again. Put on a close fitting lid* and cook very slowly on top of the stove for a good 1 and a half hours until the meat is tender. Don't worry about the apparent lack of liquid, as the meat & vegetables will provide more than enough. Serve with rice. * If you're not sure of the fitting of your lid, use a double sheet of foil to line it and give it a more secure fir.
