Happy fall y’all! It’s time to slow down and enjoy moments in the kitchen cooking, while the smell of fall candles burning wafts in the air.

One meal I’ve been loving lately this Cabbage and Beef Stew which is quite similar to my Mixed Vegetables with Cabbage. This is one of the ways we cooked cabbage while I was growing up in Cameroon.

My household is swoon over this dish and it was devoured in minutes! That’s a record for a vegetable dish!

You can serve Beef and Cabbage Stew with steamed rice or fancier coconut rice, roasted potatoes, steamed plantains, or sweet fried plantains. It really works well with plenty of starchy sides or eaten by itself. Enjoy!
