Different countries have different ways of making stew. As for the Kenyan home stew it is usually characterized by chunks of meat, potatoes, carrots and other vegetables boiled down with a few spices.
Ingredients
Meat 1/2kg
Chopped Onions
3 Tomatoes
Chopped Green pepper
Chopped Coriander
Smashed Ginger and Garlic (1/2 teaspoon)
Oil (4 teaspoons)
Salt to taste
Peeled Potatoes (preferred if stew is served with rice or chapatti)
 
Method
Wash the meat, tomatoes and potatoes
Put them in a cooking pan and add salt
Heat to boil
After 7 minutes remove the tomatoes and potatoes to avoid smashing
Boil the meat for the next 10 minutes till tender
Peel off the tomatoes and smash them into a paste (this shortens the process of frying and enable tomatoes to form a thick  paste)
