Now to prepare this Buka stew
* Add the pepper, tomatoes and one onion in a blender and blend(you can also make use of canned stewed tomatoes if you don’t have fresh tomatoes)…make sure to add little water as you blend, but if you end up with a watery mixture, simply add it to a pot and boil to remove excess liquid.
* Next, place a pot on medium heat , pour in the Palm oil , heat it up until is very hot(but not smoking), then add the meat and fry until dry. Then take them out and set aside.
* Now add an onion(shredded) into the hot oil, fry a bit and then add the blended tomato & pepper mix. Cook until the mixture loses its sour taste, or until you begin to see the oil rise to the top.
* Next , add the garlic powder, bouillon cubes (maggi /knorr cubes) , ground crayfish and salt to taste.You can also add more seasoning if you like to. Mix thoroughly, cover and leave to cook for 2 minutes.
