Mafe is a great meat dish served over rice and especially good for large groups of people. Surprisingly, the ingredients include peanut butter--but you don't taste it at all! Last time I made this for a mission fair at our church and of all the foods from different countries--they loved the Mafe and Yassa best! The gravy over the meat is very creamy.
