3 lbs. Cow’s feet( chopped and cleaned)

Get the cow’s feet from the butcher shop or grocery store already chopped, cleaned, and ready to cook because this will save you a lot of time in the kitchen…pre-preparation.
Wash meat in cold water and then put it and the salt into the pressure cooker with about 5 cups of water. Allow the pressure cooker to boil the foot until the pot starts to make that steaming sound. Wait five minutes after the sound starts and then turn off the pot.
Do not remove the pot from the stove as yet. Let the pot cool down a little bit, wait five minutes. You do not want to remove the cover from pot while it’s hot, you can hurt yourself if you do this.
Put the pot under the pipe in the sink and let some water run onto the pot to further cool it down.
Pour out the contents into a saucepan and cook the cow foot some more with all the other ingredients, except the kidney bean, if the meat is not already soft. You can skim the fat off the top of the pot with a spoon while the pot boils.
Taste the stew 7 minutes after the seasonings are added. Get a second opinion from someone about the taste of the stew at this point. You could also some spinners to the stew at this point, it’s your choice.
Let the stew cook on medium and then add the butter bean to the stew 5 minutes before removing it from the fire.
You can serve this delicious stew with bread, white rice, yams, dumplings, or potatoes.
