Javier's Stew Beef With Bittermelon

This is a recipe my parents cooked just to have something to eat. This recipe is what they learn as youths growing up in Guyana. There really is not a recipe tht have accurate of teaspoon or such. You just use your ingredients on how you see it or how you think you should cook it. Mainly you assumption But I should give you an idea on how its supposed to be done.


1. 2 to 3 cups of rice
2. A pound of chicken or beef
3. Seasonings ( Black Pepper, Lemon Pepper, Soul Seasoning, Oregano, Old Bay Seasoning
4. Celery
5. Parlies
6. Scallions
7. 1 onion
8. 2 garlic
9. 1 tamatoes (green)
10. Bittermelons


1. Clean the chicken then cut the chicken or beef you can let the chicken soak with vinegar and lemon in warm water for a while. (In this case all of this was done along time ago so it came out of the freezer clean and the beef was cut a long time ago so my pops was cutting the chicken already.) 2.Get a cooking pot and put at least 1/2 of cup of cooking oil into the pot. Let the cooking oil get hot before you put anything into it. 3.Dice the bitterlemons into cubes. Also dice the parlies, scallions, onions, garlic, tamatoes small or into cubes if you can. 4. After the the cooking oil gets hot add the chicken or beef into the pot. 4.While the chicken is cooking add the seasonings as well. 5. Add the celery parlies scallions onion garlics tamatoes and bittermelons into the pot. 6.Let it cook for at least 35 - 45 mins. (stir fry).

I apologize if you feel certain things were left out. Certain things that was supposed to be shown and explain was cook or done ahead of time.
