Peanut Butter Sauce for Mahfe:

Heat red palm oil in a skillet. Add peanut butter and one cup of water; stir to combine. Cook for a few minutes, stirring constantly. Add tomatoes and carrots; season to taste with salt, black pepper, bouillon cube and hot chili powder. Bring to a simmer; cook for about twenty-five minutes, or until sauce has desired consistency. Remove skillet from heat and set aside. In another large skillet, heat a little more red palm oil in a pan. Add beef or lamb; cook until browned. Add enough water to cover meat. Bring to a boil; reduce heat and simmer, covered, for about twenty minutes. Add the vegetables. Cover and cook for an additional twenty minutes. Stir in peanut butter sauce. Simmer for ten minutes, or until mixture is heated through.
