How to make it

  • Add water to pot. Rinse samp in colander and add to pot. Heat to boil.
  • Also at this time, add the spices, garlic and onion, Beef shank and ham Hock
  • Once boiling starts again, lower heat to low/medium flame and simmer for one hour.
  • Meanwhile, rinse the beans and examine for stones. Now you're ready to add the lima beans and kidney beans; at this time Add the rest of the meat meats at this time…..
  • Once the boiling starts, lower heat, and cook over low flame for 3 to 4 1/2 hours until sauce starts to thicken and samp is almost done..
  • Once sauce starts to thicken, stir in the kale, and simmer 30 minutes more. Then add squash, and cook 15 minutes more; then shut off flame. At this time take another onion and dice to fry in a black cast iron skillet with butter until the ends are brown..when finished add to the pot…and let stand… if the squash is not soft all the way through, still turn the flame off, the squash will finish cooking as it sits in the pot.)

    Just because you were born in Cape Verde does not make you an authority on CV cuisine. Do I have to have been born in Italy to make good lasagna? People think that if you are born outside of CV you have no right to have an opinion about anything cv.

    Way too many ingredients! Try leaving out all the meats except for the ham or chorico. Also the celery,garlic,red kidney beans, squash,adbo and sazon seasoning and kale(use collard greens). Simple is the best way. I know because i was born there.

    Sounds delicious and the next time I'm having 30 of my closest friends over for a feed I'll have a go. Seriously, it does sound delicious but trimming it down to a gallon or so would be a bit of work. Fascinating post. RJ
