This Recipe Would Teach You The Easiest Way To Prepare Delicious Buka Stew

One can never have too many great recipes of the same food and we know this. Buka stew is one delicacy that no one should miss out on. It can be enjoyed with Rice, bread, yam and any type of solid.

Buka stew is believed to have come from the Yoruba people but almost every tribe now prepares this sumptuous delicacy.

Below is an easy tutorial on how to prepare.



  • 5 Big Tomatoes
  • 3 Ata Rodo
  • 3 Tatashe
  • 2 Onion
  • 1/2 Cup Palm Oil
  • 2 Tbs Iru
  • 1Maggi Stock Cube
  • Shaki
  • Pomo
  • Beef
  • 1 Cup Beef Stock


1. Blend tomatoes, pepper and onion. Sometimes I blend mine roughly, other times smooth.

2. Heat a pot of palm oil and bleach for about 10-15 minutes. You can add a small bulb of onion when bleaching and discard it after bleaching.

You will know it’s bleached when the colour of the palm oil goes from red to almost transparent, and the aroma changes to “buka aroma”.

3. After bleaching, allow the oil to cool a bit then remove a small portion of the oil for use later.

4. Heat up the oil again and add chopped onions and iru(optional), maggi cube.

5. Allow it fry for about 3 minutes, then add your blended tomatoes.

6. Allow to cook for about 15 minutes without covering the pot. Don’t forget to stir often so that it doesn’t burn.

7.You can either fry your meat with the bleach oil before using for the stew or grill them.

8. Add assorted meats, add beef stock, no need to add salt to the stew because Maggi is enough seasoning plus the beef stock should already contain enough seasoning.

9. When the oil floats to the top of the stew, you know it’s as good as ready.

10. Now add the oil that was previously bleached and kept away for later use.

After adding allow to cook for another 10 minutes.

OBSERVE:  The feel of her face with the fluid moves of her cheeks,   Along with the tip of her chin and the curve of her neck.  Her arms straight unto her nails and her waist,  Her hips towards her backside to the very nails on her toes.  For she’d not need royalty before her reality gleams,  And her clothing could only enhance or obscure the depth of her being.    NOTICE:  She walks, leaps or sways with the very gale of feminity.  Her voice rises or deepens in the wave of existence of all stages of life.  Her eyes, the mirror to her heart; her lips, the wells of power.  The sensation that rises from her nerves to her nipples and labia  Energizes her will to be boundless either she be ravished or respectfully bedded.  Her built as she walks through life cut, crushed, companioned or celebrated.    ADMIRE:  Her ferocity in the face of love – wild, yet bridled.  Her compassion beyond the umbilical connection, still for nature’s protection.  Her beauty that may shine even from ashes of gray clumped in years.  Her melody that gladdens the hearts that seek mirth and warmth.  Her sleekness in delivering health or her skillfulness in drilling even the deepest hole    In the souls that crash her path to fill them up with what they deserve.   …
