The recipe was great I added spinach, and white beans along with a little goat meat. It was delicious. A friend of mine served it with the kale and carrots and peas added in. We both did variations but they were delicious over some rice with crusty bread and a glass of wine
This recipe is great and in our regular rotation. We add a bit of a sofrito of carrot and celery to the onion to increase the veg ratio. And also some spinach or chard towards the end. And I add more garlic because that’s how we roll. I find that good quality peanut butter makes a difference with this one. It is a totally brilliant recipe. And kids love it too which is a major major plus.Thanks Hank.
I had high expectations for this one based on the reviews and the ingredients. I followed the recipe to a T, and I’m sorry to say that it was only okay.
I am sitting here enjoying my first bowl of West African Peanut Stew – quite delicious, and a very easy to follow recipe! Used boneless, skinless chicken breasts as that is the only chicken in the supermarket today; added a cup of frozen cauliflower to thicken it; used dried cilantro as that is what i had on hand; and added just half of the cayenne listed knowing more could be added if needed. Otherwise i followed the recipe exactly. It was just two of us dining tonight, so there is at least another meal we can look forward to enjoying again. Thank you for a scrumptious recipe!
Way to make adjustments for what life gives you, Karen! Even though our store shelves are hit-and-miss, we still have so much at this point, don’t we? You two stay safe and cozy in your home, and enjoy your leftovers.
I JUST finished making this DeLiCiouS DiSH Blessings to da CooK for sharing your dear recipe
This recipe is perfect and well rounded. Next time i might try a little sesame garnish. I added a little cheese on top. Amaze.
I made this stew and liked it. However, the title should really be the more specific “Ghanaian Peanut Stew” rather than “African Peanut Stew”. This type of stew is typical of West Africa, not the entire continent and I believe people from different regions have different takes on the same recipe. This is akin to having a “South American Empanada” or “American BBQ” recipe. We would never say that.
Totally agree. I refer to this recipe as Ghanaian peanut stew whenever recommending it to anyone.
Ground nut stew (as it is often called) varies across the continent- in Zim and Zambia it is similar, but a slightly different spice mix… and served with Sadza of course.
Love this! It’s delicious and a good comfort food.
Wow, what a beautiful flavor! I made with thighs and added peanuts at end on top of individual bowls for a little crunch. The entire family loved this. I shared on my personal FB because I loved it so much. I will be adding this to my recipe arsenal.
This has become a go-to for when we have people over=)
My boyfriend and I made this stew together after he searched on the internet for soup/stew recipes. We absolutely loved it, we used the skinless boneless thighs and found it wasn’t lacking any flavor. We served it over basmati rice and siracha hot sauce. We’re so glad we were solo so there’s plenty for our leftovers. We will definitely be making this again. Truly delicious
Absolutely delicious!!!! I have had it at a restaurant and always hoped one day to cook it. Your video REALLY helped as I’m a visual person so this was so helpful and I DID IT!!!! It was wonderful and now that we’ve got cooler weather here in TX I’m gonna fix it again!!!! Thanks for sharing.
Okay, I never write anything in the comments but I couldn’t hold back over this gem. Its amazing! I found it and made it the same day. My boyfriend loved it and its great for lunches. Even better… its healthy.
Thank you Hank!
I made this tonight (halved the recipe) and it was very good. It was nice and rich and nutty, but overall I found the flavour a bit flat. I think next time I’ll increase the amount of ginger and coriander, and perhaps add a bit of acidity like a splash of vinegar. I think I’ll pay more attention to my local cafe’s version next time to see if I can detect what’s lacking here. I’ll definitely try it again though.
This recipe is a favorite of my family and friends! If your looking for a WOW bowl of comfort bursting with flavor, this is it. I make this usually just once a year but do a triple batch and freeze the rest in gallon ziploc bags. Works great! Absolutely amazing stew!
My family really enjoyed this stew. It was easy to make and perfect for a cold evening.
This recipe is a smash hit with my family. Thanks Hank for delivering another dynamite dish!
The BEST! I saved lots of extra labor and mess (plus fat) by using skinless boneless thighs cut into bite size peices (now you can use an immersion blender if you want). I also ONLY use garnet yams…they literally melt into a sweet creamy sauce. Everyone who’s tried this has loss their minds raving.
Loved this! Wanted to make it last year but didn’t get around to it. I made a couple of changes. After cooking it for and hour and 10 my meat was done. After I removed it I took out the solid potatoes onions et al and blened them and then added that back into the stock before shredding my chicken. So deliciously creamy! I wish I had used sea salted road nuts instead of unsalted. I think I wouldn’t have had to add any salt had I done that. I love spicy so I added sriacha to my serving since my finance isn’t a spicy person. Garnished with more peanuts. I also think fried avocado would be kick ass with this!
Great recipe! I did follow it to the letter and it was delicious. I’ve made several variations of this recipe, but this was my favorite!
I make this every couple of months, it is absolutely AMAZING. The only thing I leave out is the peanuts and it’s just perfect without it. Making it today! Cant wait.
