ARABIAN FOOD If you're following me on Twitter or Instagram then you would know that I was preparing for new post for this week which it's going to be about food! As I promised you, 2014 will be a new fresh year for the blog, and here is the first new way of photo-shooting and serving the dishes, hopefully you will like it!
The first dish for this year will be Green Beans, it's one of my favorite dishes so far. Green beans are called Lubiyeh in Arabic, and are most often stewed with tomatoes like this. My mother is such a fantastic cooker or let me say CHEF, last week I had the chance to have some free time and joined her in kitchen watching her cook.
2 tablespoons vegetable oil
2 lbs beef round roast, cubed
2 onions, diced
1/2 cup water
2 lbs fresh green beans, trimmed and halved
1 1/2 teaspoons allspice
1 teaspoon ground black pepper
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 (16 ounce) can canned tomatoes, chopped
1 (15 ounce) can tomato sauce
-Heat the oil in a skillet over medium heat; brown the beef in the hot oil for 10 minutes.
-Stir in the onions and 1/2 cup water; cover, reduce heat to low, and simmer 15 minutes, stirring occasionally.
-Mix the green beans, allspice, pepper, and salt into the mixture; cover and simmer another 15 minutes.
-Add the tomatoes and tomato sauce; cover with water; cover and simmer another 30 minutes.
