Hello HF Reader🙋🏽‍♀️

I know that I am an embarrassment to the blogging industry. Hahaha 😂😂 I haven’t uploaded a single thing for ages and I am so sorry. But something just hit me this morning and I feel like sharing a recipe with you. This recipe is so special to me, because of how “veggie packed” it is and being a health advocate, it is always a pleasure for me to share with the world recipes that will put people on the right nutrition path. I’ll just sharply show you the ingredients and the steps. Click continue reading to see more.

These are the ingredients:

  • Beef
  • Carrots
  • Cauliflower
  • Broccoli
  • White Onions
  • Spring Onions
  • Ginger
  • Scotch bonnet blend (for marinade)
  • Red, Yellow, Green Capsicums
  • Ground yellow pepper
  • Dark Soy Sauce
  • Corn Flour or All Purpose Flour
  • Olive Oil
  • Celery
  • Garlic
  • Seasoning cubes
  • Salt
  • Water

A night before the day I intend to make this sauce, I’ll marinate the beef. That way, in the morning the beef must have been marinating for a least 12 hours. To marinate, I simply add garlic, ginger, smooth pepper blend, seasoning cubes, celery stem paste. This celery stem paste, I blend celery stem and water. Then I sieve it. The chaff is what I like to add to the marinade. Then I put it in the fridge for an overnight marinade.

I start by shallow frying the marinated beef in olive oil. Then I cover the pot and let the beef cook while releasing it’s juice into pot. Once the beef is cooked, I begin to add all the vegetables, starting with carrots, then capsicums, celery leaves, onions and the ground yellow pepper.

After giving it a good stir, I add some water, salt and seasoning cubes. I cover to cook a little bit for 15 minutes, then I add the dark soy sauce, spring onions, broccoli and cauliflower last. I cover for another 10 minutes because I don’t really want the vegetables to cook too much.


Here, I taste for salt to see if there is need for adjustments. If none, I quickly make the slurry by adding some water to flour. This mixture thickens the sauce and gives it a more solid consistency. I prefer to eat this with plain rice and I usually serve it in a sizzling plate.
