Stew can save you a lot. Once you know how to make a good stew you can eat many things with your stew including bread. I love stew and bread. I grew up in Nigeria and I know Nigerian stew made with beef, chicken, lamb, or fish or for more exotic taste a combination of all can be very tasty and satisfying. Nigerian stew also acts as a base for many of our popular dishes e.g Jollof rice, stewed beans, yam pottage, beans and rice, pasta etc.
