Recipe: Beefy Potato Mix

Do you ever get sick of rice? If you’re West African especially, it feels like rice is the go-to meal. In the beginning of this year, I vowed to go a few weeks without rice just so I could get a break and explore other meals. If you’re looking for a quick and easy non-rice recipe to whip up for yourself, this one is a sure thing. I used beef in this recipe, but a healthier alternative would be to use chicken breast instead. Enjoy!


  • 3 large potatoes – peeled and diced
  • Salt
  • Raw pork/beef – diced into small pieces
  • 1 tsp rosemary
  • 1/2 tsp black pepper
  • 1/2 tsp ginger spice
  • 1/2 tsp garlic spice
  • 2 tbsps canola oil
  • 1 small onion – sliced
  • 1 habanero pepper – chopped
  • Seasonal vegetables (peas, green beans, bell peppers)

1. Put potatoes in large pot with water and salt and boil till potatoes are tender. Drain excess water.

3. In a large pan, heat oil over medium heat and sauté the meat in the pan for ten minutes or until fully cooked.
