The first question most people ask when they’re sampling our new Bambarre Pork & Peanut Ragout is “What’s ragout?” In French, ragout means “stew”, but it is literally translated as, “awaken the appetite.” That’s what this new Bold Eats creation does: awaken your taste buds.

Actually, my wife makes a version of this African dish using chicken breast meat. Initially, my kids were skeptical when they heard that there was chicken, sweet potatoes and peanut butter—all in the same dish. But they tried it, they loved it and they asked for more! (Is there any greater endorsement for a new culinary creation?)

Like ‘stew’—only way better

When we began the Bold Eats project in 2007, we wanted to create adventurous dishes that would appeal to people’s inherent love of unique flavors and textures. We decided to re-visit the idea of a “stew,” one that would awaken the senses. Bambarre Pork Peanut & Ragout is the result.

Bambarre (Bomb-BAH-ray) is a reference to the indigenous African groundnut. They’re similar to peanuts, which were brought to Africa from the West and because of their versatility were incorporated into local cuisine. The meat is lean, flavorful pork, and the vegetables and spices in Bambarre Pork & Peanut Ragout were chosen from various regions of Africa, where people freely use native foods, plus ingredients and flavors from other continents.

I think you’ll agree that the final result is a wonderfully rich stew of pork (favored in southern Africa), sweet potatoes (popular in West Africa), ginger and cinnamon (spices introduced from neighboring Arab cultures) and peanuts, tomatoes, chilies and onions (common in Central Africa). Although Bambarre Pork and Peanut Ragout seems creamy, it contains no dairy products; its richness comes from a combination of chicken stock and peanut butter. Most people consider it to be moderately spicy, but because we’ve included sweet spices, the overall flavor balances well on the palate.

I hope you’ll appreciate this creative sampling of African cuisine (and culture) in our wonderfully flavorful Bambarre Pork and Peanut Ragout. Only from Bold Eats.
