If you're looking for a quick vegetable sauce that you can enjoy with yam, rice or (my preferred pairing) Spaghetti, then try this Beef Stir Fry. It takes less than 15 minutes to cook and always delicious!


Beef Stir-fry

½ Cup Vegetable Oil

6 Scotch Bonnet

1 Large Onion

2 Large Bell Peppers

Ugu (Fluted Pumpkin) Vegetable

1 tablespoon Curry

1 tablespoon Thyme

Salt to taste

Seasoning according to preference


· Add vegetable oil to a non-stick pan and allow to heat up.

· Next add stir-fry beef (make sure it is drained of all liquid, pat dry with a kitchen tissue), stir-fry for about 3 minutes.

· Add curry, thyme, salt and seasoning cube according to your taste 

· Next add some chopped onions, stir fry till onions is translucent

· Blend or pound Scotch Bonnet and Bell Pepper together (make sure it is drained of water if you used any), stir-fry till the oil starts to separate from the sauce.

· Wash and drain Ugu vegetable then add to the sauce and stir for a few seconds.

· Take it off the heat.
