Peanut Butter Stew

Doesn't that sound like fun? This was a rather unlikely combo that turned out to be quite tasty. I served it over brown rice.

olive oil
1 large onion, chopped
1.5 lbs. of round steak cut into small cubes (1/2 inch)
1/2 cup creamy unsweetened natural peanut butter
1 1/2 cups cold water
1/3 cup tomato paste
2 cups hot water
1 t chipotle pepper powder
2 bay leaves
salt and pepper
Bag of fresh spinach

brown rice

Heat the oil in a large saucepan. Add the onion and cook 3 minutes. Add the beef and cook at least five minutes getting meat browned all sides-about 5 minutes
In small bowl, combine peanut butter and cold water, then pour over meat. Dilute the tomato paste in the 2 cups of hot water and pour in pan. Stir thoroughly. Add the chipotle powder, bay leaves and salt and pepper to taste. Reduce heat to low and simmer for 1 hour or until the meat is tender. Remove bay leaves and throw in the spinach-stir well. Serve over brown rice.
