Potjiekos (South Africa)

cooking oil
beef, lamb/mutton, chicken, even fish (cheaper cuts of meat are better)
pumpkin, squash, zucchini, potatoes, yams, tomatoes, beans, thickly sliced
wine
salt
pepper
coriander
turmeric
curry

Use a large iron pot, preferably with three legs. It must have a
tightly fitting lid.

Make a little fire. It must be very low. Brown chunks of meat or
chicken in the pot. Then pack the meat at the bottom of the pot.
In layers pack the other sliced vegetables, potatoes should be at
the top, seasoning each layer as you pack it in. Pour wine over
the layers.

Cook this over the very low fire for 4 to 6 hours without stirring,
sipping wine with your friends while you solve the world's problems
and while they tll you what you've left out of the pot. Now and
then add a bit of wine knowingly to the pot, just to make your
friends think you know what you're doing.

Serve over rice and you'll realize that life is good when you do
things this slowly.

This is a traditional dish, which can be made using just about
anything to hand. Great for a cookout on a summers day. Requires
a lot of time, and lots of wine to drink while you're waiting. The
recipe really depends on what you have and therefore is almost
never the same twice.
