  • 3 cups (600g) long grain parboiled rice
  • 3 cups beef mince
  • 1½ cups tomato stew
  • Chunks of beef
  • 1 red onion (diced)
  • 1 cup diced carrots
  • 1 cup diced red and green bell peppers
  • 2 teaspoons black pepper (or to taste)
  • 2 teaspoons thyme
  • 3 small seasoning cubes
  • 3 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • Salt (to taste)

Notes on the ingredients

  1. One standard measuring cup (level) of long grain parboiled rice equivalent to 1 milk cup or 1 small party cup.
  2. I used lumps of meat too because in Nigeria it is disrespectful to serve a meal such as Jollof Rice without at least one lump of meat.
  3. You can use habanero peppers (atarodo, ose oyibo, atarugu) if you do not have black peppers. I prefer black pepper for Beef Mince Jollof Rice.
  4. Use any beef flavour seasoning/boullion cubes.
  5. I highly recommend red onions; it adds colour and a nice flavour to the meal.
  6. I normally use a ration of 1:1 for the rice and beef mince but feel free to add more beef mince if you wish but never less (in cups) than the rice.

    The deliciousness and versatility of Nigerian jollof rice cannot be overemphasized. It can be made with a variety of ingredients such as leafy vegetables, cabbage, carrots, Irish potatoes, shrimps, beef, fish, chicken and many more. I personally think there is nothing as satisfying as enjoying one particular food with different taste, aroma, flavor and nutrients.
