2 small tins bully beef
1 small onion, chopped or sliced
1 small ripe tomato, chopped or sliced
piece of hot pepper, chopped or sliced
piece of sweet pepper, chopped or sliced (you can make it colourful by using a piece of both red and yellow sweet peppers, or red and green or yellow and green, etc.,)
1 tsp. black pepper
Just a tiny piece of garlic, less than 1 clove (optional) I put garlic in every cooking.
1 tbsp. cooking oil (I used Olive oil)
1 tbsp. ketchup (optional)
Put the bully beef into a bowl, break up the bully beef with a fork.
Put a skillet or Dutch pot over medium heat, pour in the oil, when the oil becomes hot, add all the seasonings, except the black pepper and ketchup (condiments) and sauté for a minute or until translucent, avoid burning the seasonings
Add the bully beef, sprinkle on the black pepper and gently stir, lower the heat to the lowest flames. Cover the pot for a minutes to cook the bully beef. After a minutes, add the ketchup (optional, however, it enhances the taste of the bully beef) gently stir and remove pot from heat.
Best served warm with steamed white rice or boiled dumplings
Fried ripe plantains enhances the taste of most food, for example, fried ripe plantains with curried goat and steamed rice is superb. My grand mom likes fried ripe plantain with cooked bully beef and steamed white rice, she said, it is “es ist köstlich”
