It is a dish mother would at all times make on a Monday, when she would have leftover stewed rooster from Sunday’s huge lunch (nicely if my brother and I didn’t assault the rooster the night earlier than as we watched Knight Rider). The string beans or in some circumstances Bodi (yard bean) normally got here from our little kitchen backyard in the back of the home and I used to be by some means at all times concerned in choosing them. This time we’ll rock this from ‘scratch’.

half scotch bonnet pepper (no seeds)

With the ginger you possibly can definitely grate it’s so you received’t get a piece of ginger when consuming.. I luv getting bits of ginger so I julienne it on this recipe. For the next step chances are you’ll wish to watch the video under.
Warmth the veg oil on a excessive warmth in a heavy pan. Then add the brown sugar and utilizing a dry spoon, transfer it a round. It is going to begin to soften, go frothy, then amber in colour. Act NOW! Add the seasoned rooster to the pot. Sure you add every thing. Combine nicely to coat the rooster items with the caramelized sugar. No the dish will NOT be candy. If the sugar goes past amber (black) cease! Don’t proceed otherwise you’ll have bitter tasting rooster.
Flip the warmth all the way down to medium, place a lid on the pot and cook dinner for about 5-Eight minutes. It is going to spring plenty of pure juices. The subsequent step in to infuse the rooster with the ‘stew’ taste and provides it a stunning golden colour. Crank up the warmth, take away the lid and burn off all of the liquid.
After about Four-6 minutes you must see the oil we began with on the backside of the pot… it’s now time so as to add the trimmed string beans to the pot and stir nicely.
Swish the cup of water in the identical bowl you marinated the rooster to select up any remaining marinade, then pour it into the pot with the rooster and beans. Convey this as much as a boil, then scale back to a rolling boil. The objective is to completely cook dinner the rooster and beans.
After about 15 minutes, this must be prepared. Nevertheless, you could personalize this a bit. Style for salt and alter and there might be a little bit of gravy on the underside of the pot. You might burn that off utterly (with lid off) or depart it to pour over your rice. In my case I gave it three minutes with the lid off.. that is the place I added the tomatoes to the pot as I didn’t need them to over-cook.
The proper combo for this (apart from sizzling Sada Roti) is sizzling rice.. steamed, boiled or executed in your fav approach. For me it’s boiled lengthy grain par-boiled brown.
