Hearty meals bring people together. This tomato stew is no different and an incredibly delicious dish. Also known as “tamatiebredie” in Afrikaans, this appetising stew is a hit every time you prepare it. The wonder of tomato stew is not about how it looks, but about how it tastes. And about how it makes you feel inside.
Wondering how you can get your stew packed with flavour? The secret to a stew is not to add too much liquid all at once. In fact, this is the complete magic of a stew: you need a big pot, preferably heavy-bottomed, with a tight-fitting lid. And you add little bits of liquid, a little bit at a time. The liquid teases out all the flavours of your ingredients.
This recipe is perfect when those autumn months kick in and slowly transform into winter. However, nothing stops you from enjoying a hearty meal in summer. Let us know in the comments if you have tried this recipe.
