Spice Up Your Meals With This Tasty Corned Beef Stew recipe

The Corned Beef stew is a common dish in every Nigerian home.

Corned beef stew just as the name implies is made primarily from corned beef or minced beef (if you prefer) and pepper.

With a few easy-to-get ingredients, you can have it ready to eat with your rice, pasta, yam, and even bread according to your choice.


• 1 canned corned beef
• 2 red bell peppers
• 2 tablespoons tomato paste
• 5 medium fresh tomatoes
• 2 habanero peppers
• 1-teaspoon curry powder
• 1-teaspoon thyme
• 1-2 stock cubes
• Dried pepper to taste
• Salt to taste


  1.  Combine the peppers with tomatoes and blend into a smooth consistency and strain out excess water.
  2. Chop onion into stripes, mix the tomato paste with a little water and set aside.
  3. Place a pan on the heat, add oil just enough to fry the tomato, add the onion first and sauté.
  4. Add the tomato paste and stir-fry for 5 minutes add the tomato puree and fry until the liquid and the tangy taste disappear.
  5.  Season the stew with thyme, curry and pepper, and stock cubes and stir well to combine.
  6.  Add water to the stew to adjust its thickness, (once you add the corned beef it will become thickened). You may not need salt since corned beef is a little bit salty.
  7. Take out the corned beef from the can and break into tiny pieces with a spoon, add it to the stew and stir well and leave to cook for 5 minutes on medium heat. You can add more water if it appears too thick and cook for another 5 minutes on low heat.
  8.  Take the corned beef stew from heat and serve over boiled spaghetti or macaroni.
