This sounds better. I have never been hungry enough to eat worms.

West African Groundnut (peanut) Stew Recipe

1 pound cubed stewing beef or chicken parts
6 tablespoons peanut butter
2 medium onions -- chopped
1 pound ripe tomatoes -- peeled and chopped or chopped tomatoes
3 fresh chillies
1 pound carrots (or a mixture of carrots -
turnips, and to make up 1lb)
pinch of mixed herbs
piece of grated fresh root ginger or
1 hea dried ginger
Salt and pepper
7 ounces black-eyed beans soaked overnight or can of
(great northern)
7 ounces long grain rice
(These added ingredients appeared in another recipe
Corn and Sweet potatoes, diced)

This is all cooked on top of the stove in a very heavy saucepan
with a tight fitting lid,
as the meat needs to cook in its own juices, or a flameproof
If you have a pressure cooker use it as an ordinary saucepan,
as it seals in the steam beautifully.
Also, if you are not sure of the fitting of your casserole or
saucepan lid then use a double sheet of foil to line it and
give it a more secure fit.

Deseed chillies and chop finely
Combine with peanut butter, ginger, herbs, vegetables and tomatoes
and mix well.
Place meat in pan, followed by vegetable mixture and some
seasoning. Put on close fitting lid and cook very slowly on top
of the stove for approximately
1.5 hours or until meat is tender.
Don't worry about apparent lack of liquid because the meat and
vegetables will provide enough.
Cook beans for one hour.
Cook rice in double its volume of salted water for 15-20 mins.
Season beans with salt and pepper and mix with rice.
Serve as an accompaniment to the stew. - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
