Meaty samp & beans stew

Meaty samp & beans stew

My husband has been traveling a lot recently, leaving me aaaall alooooone at home… poor me!

I try to make the best of it. I watch all the chick flicks and series I need to catch up on. I have girly suppers with lots of giggling and silliness. And I eat meat, lots of meat! My husband is a full vegetarian so I only have meat in the house if I am catering or when he’s away.
The one meaty dish I made recently is a dish I have loved since childhood is a samp and beans recipe with meat. I have taught my housekeeper to make a delicious vegetarian version which is the one we always eat. But while my husband was away, I thought it was time to make a hearty samp and bean recipe with meat.
It was delicious! Add to it a quick chopped salad and its a fabulously balanced, healthy and economical meal too.

For a rich twist to this traditional South African dish, try my stew version of a classic: a yummy and comforting Samp and beans recipe with meat.

 

Samp and beans recipe with meat

Serves 6 – 8 (it freezes beautifully)
2 cups of dried samp and beans
1 cup of sugar beans
2 Tbsp of oil
2 large onions, finely chopped
3 cloves of garlic, finely chopped
500g beef shin off the bone, diced
1.5 liters of boiling water
2 oxtail stock cubes, crumbled
2 tsp of smoked paprika
2 tsp of mild curry powder
1 Tbsp of soya sauce
1 tin of chopped tomatoes
2 cups of grated carrot
Salt and pepper to taste

How to cook samp and beans: Soak the samp and beans in water over-night or for a few hours. You can cook them when they are dry but it will just take longer and you will need to add more water to the recipe.
In a medium-sized heavy-bottomed pot with a lid, fry the onion and garlic in the oil. Add the beef and fry for a few minutes. Add the water and stock cubes. Drain and add the samp and beans.
Add all the remaining ingredients except the salt a and sugar. Simmer for at least 2 hours, with the lid on stirring from time to time, until the beef and beans are soft and the sauce has formed a thick gravy. Season with salt and sugar to taste and allow this to simmer for a further half an hour or so until the flavors are fully combined.
Now you have a delicious samp and beans with meat recipe which you can serve with a chopped salad of your choice to make it a little more healthy.

 

Pin for later!

  1. This is the best samp,bean and meat recipe I’ve seen online so far. I soaked my beans and samp last night. I’m cooking right now. I’ve used mutton and bits of bacon instead of beef. The aromas coming from the kitchen have me convinced it’s going to be delicious. My partner is coming back from a long trip out of the country so I wanted something traditional to surprise him. 🙂 I’ll let you know what he thinks. But I’m already smiling.
