My Global Food Challenge


Jarret de Boeuf (Chad)

“This is a traditional Chadian recipe for classic stew of beef initially cooked in salted water that’s then cooked with vegetables and sweet potatoes.”


lkg beef, preferably from the middle of the leg
2 onions, diced
2 garlic cloves
salt, black pepper and cayenne pepper to taste
6 whole cloves
2 carrots, sliced
1 aubergine, cubed
1 leek, chopped
1 sweet potato, cubed and chopped


Add the meat to salted water, bring to boil and cook until done. Take the meat from the water, place in a new pot, cover with cold water and season with the spices. Bring to a boil and allow to simmer very gently for 90 minutes. Add the vegetables, top-up the water and cook until the vegetables are done (about 40 minutes). Spoon into a serving bowl and serve with rice or fufu.
