Chad

Hey, ladies and gents!  Sorry I’ve been out for so long, it’s been a long week!

Today we’re going to another central African nation, where they have found evidence of human inhabitants dating to 500 BC!  This country won their independence from France in 1960, and is home to some of the best camel racing in the world!

One strange fact about the Republic of Chad, is that they have ample reserves of gold and uranium, but about 87% of the population lives below poverty level.

That brings us to the food- In poorer countries, most people eat what they can grow. Our dinner is a simple beef stew…

  • 1 lb beef meat, cut into cubes
  • 2 sweet potatoes, peeled and diced
  • 1 onion, diced
  • 3 carrots, peeled and sliced
  • 1 eggplant, peeled and diced
  • 1 leek, sliced
  • salt and pepper to taste
  1. cut beef into bite sized chunks, I like to make sure the meat is partially frozen, as it cuts easier.   chad
  2. Boil meat for about an hour on medium, then drain and add to clean, cold water in pot.

     

  3. Dice, slice, and chop veggies, then add to the water

     

  4. Boil for another hour, and season with salt and pepper to taste.   chad6

You have to admire the simplicity of this- it was delicious and nutritious!  Not much in the way of prepping, and very low maintenance cooking.  The only thing that I didn’t like was that it was a bit bland.  Extra salt remedied that very quickly though!

Thanks for stopping by again!  I promise to not take such a long break again! 😉  See you later, when we shoot down to South America and eat in Ecuador!
