Method

  • Cook the cow ribs with the seasoning cubes and onion.

  • When the meat is done, turn off the heat, remove the chunks of onion then take out the meat from the beef stock.

  • Add the kuka powder, spreading over the meat stock as you add. Then stir very well with a slotted spoon to ensure that you get a smooth mix without lumps.

  • Add the pepper, crayfish and dawa dawa blend and palm oil. Stir very well.

  • Cover and cook for 5 minutes on medium heat, stirring it from time to time. Kuka is very much like ogbono hence sticks to the bottom of the pot if not stirred often.

  • After 5 minutes, add the cooked beef and some salt if necessary. Stir very well.

  • Cover and once it boils again, it is done!
