Ginger Beef Stew (Aunty Celine’s Stew)

Hi guys, hope you are all doing good. This recipe is inspired by one of my Aunts. I remember when ever I go to Aunty Celine’s house, there is this aroma that always wafts in the air. It always leads me to her Kitchen. Lol. I tried one off her many stews and I must say it was off the hook. I absolutely loved it. 

The smell and taste that somewhat hit me first was the ginger. It added an amazing flavour to the stew. It was really delicious. I can’t remember if I asked her for the recipe, but all o know is everything I am at her place, I always hope she has the stew. 

So whilst I was compiling recipes for the blog, I rembered this stew and it brought back memories. I said to myself I must make that stew! My mouth was already salivating at the prospect of eating it after it’s been cooked. Lol, trust me you all would love it.
