How To Make Buka Stew (Pictures) by pocohantas(f): 3:38pm On Jan 09
Previously I created a thread on how to make a nice Ngerian stew. You can find it HERE.

If you have learned that one, we can proceed to this. Buka stew is that stew you see in mama put. They are usually fluid with enough oil. They will always stir it, before they begin the hard work of finding your favourite meat. Lol

Cc: Eddygourdo, come see how palm oil can give a good stew.


WHAT YOU WILL NEED;

Patience
Palm oil
Tatashe (red and green)
Tomatoes
Scotch bonnet pepper
Assorted meat
Salt
Seasoning cubes (knorr chicken)
Onions
Good pot to withstand the boiling without burning.

Fun fact: Do you know your tatashe is the red variant of green pepper? Yes, the green pepper you use for fried rice.

Pic 1: I thought this guy was selling tatashe o, he had only tomatoes. Was so impressed with the arrangement.

Pic 2: He asked me to snap the front too, lol. Last last, I bought tomatoes that I thought I didn’t need.

Pic 3: The exact way I combined my pepper mix

Note: You will have to bleach your palm oil. To do this, put in a pot and allow it to heat. Please cover the pot while this is happening. After some minutes, depending on the quantity of the oil, put off the burner and allow it to cool undisturbed. DO NOT OPEN ABEG.

— You need pepper mix, not tomato mix. I say pepper mix because the pepper would be higher. Don’t worry about it being too spicy, the bell pepper, little tomatoes and palm oil would step it down.

— The red bell pepper should be more than the green. Blend them together. It should be runny and smooth.

— IF THEY DON’T HAVE ENOUGH TATASHE, THEY’LL TRY TO TRICK YOU INTO TAKING SHOMBO- DON’T FALL FOR IT. TATASHE IT IS.

— You don’t need to boil your pepper mix. Buka stew is not thick. Never seen a thick one.

— You don’t need SPICES for your buka stew. However, you can spice your meat- MODERATELY.

Pic 1: I got this gallon of premium palm oil from my village people. Let’s also show the good things they do, lol.

Pic 2: Blended mix

Pic 3 & 4: A little bit of everything.

STEP 1: Reheat part of the oil. A little over half of it in another pot. Add the chopped onions and fry till it is caramelized.

STEP 2: Pour in your pepper mix and allow it to “boil-fry” till the oil floats on top. Set to medium-low heat.

PLEASE DO NOT COVER THE POT. I can’t over emphasize this. Apart from allowing evaporation to take place faster, it also prevents condensation from altering the flavour.


STEP 3: Keep checking on it. If you are a veteran, you’ll know when you are almost there. If you are not- watch out for a change in colour and consistency. You’ll also notice the oil has separated (as usual) and floats on top. At this point, pour in your stock and meat.


Pic 1: Bleached palm oil
Pic 2: Initial stage of my pepper mix. Watch the transformation.
Pic 3: My mix is now well fried. It took me 1hr 31mins to get this.
Pic 4: Poured in my stock and meat.

STEP 4: Give it a few more minutes and you’ll notice more oil has gathered on top. Now you are good to go. If the oil is not enough, you can top up now. Unlike the Nigerian stew, this one doesn’t need to spend more time boiling. Give your meat a few minutes to boil in the stew and turn off the heat.

A colleague taught me that, she actually came to my place then and showed me, but I don’t like it. I usually avoid cooking things I don’t like- except he likes it. Example is egusi soup.

How come? It seems like something anyone would hardly dislike, since it's all just green peppers (of different kinds) fried in bleached oil....kinda like pepper stew

Or is it because of the iru? I'd skip that if I had to make it.

You have a point there. Maybe I should try making it myself. The iru wasn’t much of a problem. I’ll make it myself and see how it goes.

That's a good marketing strategy, eye catchy, there is no way it won't draw customers. Very unique. It reminds of a woman that sells abacha in my school then, she arranges all the ingredients in such a way that even if you dont want to eat abacha, you will buy it for her patience. Its good to be unique.
