Most of us in Zimbabwe grew up eating muriwo
(veggies) in one form or another. In fact, the generality of households in Zim have backyard gardens with some form of veggies taking sprout at any given time. It is interesting that the concept of backyard gardens albeit with an organic bias has now caught-on like wild fire in the western world. The following recipe that produces fried steak mince and muriwo
brings up some nostalgic feeling. I used to survive on it time and again as a young man just out of University living by myself in Harare.
This recipe produces a very tasty meal. Hands-down the best accompaniment of this fried mince and muriwo is good old sadza (pap or mealie meal porridge). You will also have a great tasty ride with bread (chingwa). As often said this is one of my few mastered recipes and hope you enjoy it. I would appreciate a comment at the end to let me know how it went with yours in your kitchen.
