Stewed Egg

Hi guys.
Hope you are all doing good? This is a very quick post. I seem to always make egg stew/sauce but i didn’t  blog about how I make it differently most of the time. I have another post on the blog called Egg Stew be sure to also check that one out. 

So the last time I made another one, I decided to post it for my lovely readers to benefit from. It’s so easy to make and it’s not dry at all. 

Egg sauces should make you want to eat Yam a lot more and not be gagging for water. It should be moist (obviously cooked very well) but not too dry. Even to a point it can be eaten on its own. 

Let’s get started shall we

  • 4 eggs
  • 1 large pepper (Tatashe)
  • 1 or 2 habanero pepper (ata rodo)
  • 1 medium onion
  • 1 can of sardine or smoked cooked mackerel (Titus fish)
  • 1 knorr cube
  • 1/2 a teaspoon of curry
  • 1/2 a teaspoon of black pepper
  • A pinch or two of thyme 
  • Red and green pepper sliced thinly 
  • 1 soup spoonful of beef or chicken stock
  • 3 tablespoons of olive or coconut oil 


  • Blender
  • Frying pan
  • Spatula 

Prep time: 5 minutes 

Cooking/frying time: 30 minutes 
Total time: 30 minutes 


Add the oil to the frying pan and let it heat up

Next add the sliced onion and fry for 5 minutes . 

Next blend the peppers and then add it to the frying pan. 


After 15 minutes it should look like this 

  Next add the sliced peppers, curry, thyme, pepper, knorr cube Allow to cook for 5 minutes

Next add the oil. Fry for 5 minutes on reduced heat

 Allow to get a bit thick

Next add the sardine or smoked mackerel 

Break the sardine into chunks. 

Next break the eggs and whisk before adding to the sauce.


 Do not stir immediately. Allow the egg to form before you stir. 
Once the egg has formed, then stir and lift gently 


Continue to Gently stir until you get this


 Once you have the above, allow to simmer gently until the egg has been thoroughly cooked. 
Remove from the heat and it’s ready to serve. 
I loved making this, because it doesn’t include a lot of spices, yet it still tasted amazing. The effects of the grilled peppers really made a difference. 
I served mine with Yam and I totally loved it. You would too. Go on and try it 


That’s it from me today

I’ll see you all in my next post 

Love Duchess O
