Cow Feet Stew - Beef Trotters

Cow feet stew is know by many names including beef trotters, trotters, cow feet, cow trotters and  cow hooves. If you have a name you call them, different from the ones I have mentioned then let me know in the comments 👇

My mom used to cook beef trotters and she would cook beans then mix the two, the taste of this combination was honestly out of this would, I would definitely love to beef trotters mixed with beans.😊 My mom is in her mid 40s so she is still very strong and I doubt she would refuse if I was to ask her to cook cow hooves mixed with beans. 🤗🤗

Trotters are very common in African, I have heard they are common in Asia and the Caribbean too. I am all about multi-cuisine so I would love to know how it's prepared in other parts of the world.

For those who have never cooked beef trotters before, this is the perfect recipe for you, perhaps it's even different from the way you prepare your trotters. 😋

  4. This looks like a great recipe. Though I am not at all into red meat but I know a lot of people I'd love to cook this for. Thanks for sharing! :)

  5. OMG! This reminds me of home! I'm a West African girl and I love cow foot stew/soup and sucking the juicy, saucy bones and ligaments...aaahhhh! Alas, I don't eat red meat anymore but this brings back so many memories.

  6. I always like recipes that make sure we are using all parts of the animal - this isn't something I've ever tried in Canada!
