One of the things I love most about this dish is how versatile it is; indeed, every family has their variation in Cameroon, which they, of course, swear is the best. I have used beef in this recipe, but if you prefer, you can use lamb or chicken instead. 

If you don’t have any bell peppers at home, carrots, green beans, or any similar crunchy vegetable will work just as well. Whatever combination of ingredients you choose will bring their own unique qualities to the dish, so go ahead and have fun with it.

The type of potato is the only element that I must be a little strict on. They need to be russet, Irish, or other similar potatoes that are both starchy and waxy
