Cubes of beef are simmered with plenty of onions creating a rich and tender beef stew. This is a very popular, simple dish made in Egyptian households.
My Egyptian husband tought me this recipe. We love it. He puts it over rice or pasta. I put it on mashed potatoes. But we cook it about 3 or 4 hours. - 04 Aug 2013 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
I love this one, but I do it a little differently. I add "seven spice" mix and use a pressure cooker. It gets done in 20-30 mins and is so tender that it falls apart. Over white rice, yummy! - 28 Aug 2013 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
Overall this was extremely yummy. I followed it to a T, my only negative to this whole dish is there was too much onion sauce and not enough meat. And it could account for a few things, 1: my onions were the size of small grapefruits or softballs, so I used only 3 and 2: possibly didn't even need that much water. But the overall flavor of the dish was great, so I can say for sure I will make again, but will add at least another pound of stew meat. It sure was different and delicious. You could totally add veggies to this to make it chunkier. - 07 Sep 2013 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
