Sukuma Wiki- Kenyan Beef with Collards and Tomatoes

Sukuma Wiki/ Kenyan Beef with Collards and Tomatoes

I love the flavors and simplicity of this dish. Serve over brown rice for a balanced, easy, nutritious meal.

-2 Tbsp olive, peanut, coconut or canola oil
-1 onion, diced
-1 lb lean ground beef
-4 cloves garlic, minced
-1 tsp cumin
-1 tsp coriander
-1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp ginger
-1/2 tsp turmeric
-1 tsp salt
-1/2 tsp black pepper
-1/4 tsp cayenne
-1 bunch collards, washed and sliced into strips
-1 pint cherry or grape tomatoes, sliced in half
-juice of 1 lemon

Heat oil in medium pot over medium heat. Add onion, saute 5 minutes. Add beef, cook until brown, about 10 minutes, stirring and breaking apart with a spoon while cooking. Drain off fat. Add garlic, cook 2 additional minutes, stirring well. Add spices, cook 1 additional minutes. Add collards, cook 5 minutes, stirring intermittently. Add tomatoes, cook 3 more minutes, stirring intermittently. Remove from heat, stir in lemon juice and serve immediately over your preferred rice.
