Great, easy dinner. I used olive oil and cooked the whole dish in a dutch oven. I left out the water, because there was plenty of liquid from the beef and onion. I served this over brown rice, low fat, healthy dish that tastes wonderful.
The first time I made this it was just okay. The second time I made it, I added some things and it was delicious. Added some chopped potatoes, a pinch of white pepper, 1/2 teaspoon of cinnamon, some minced garlic and butter, and 1 tablespoon of crushed red pepper (I like things spicy, you might not want to add that much). I also cut the recipe in half because it makes a lot of food. Next time I will cut it in 1/4, as I am just cooking for me and my husband. Served with some Indian panera bread. Delicious!
I rgeularly make a variation of this dish. My husband was raised in Damascus & he loves it. I use cinnamon instead of allspice ( I'll give this a try someday ). I brown the meat in butter, chopped onion & cinnamon to change the taste of the meat. I then add the fresh green beans-cover & steam 10 minutes. I then add a 28oz can of diced tomatoes & 1 8oz can of tomato sauce..sit on low for an hou & the serve over rice. DELICIOUS!
This recipe is awsome I really think that the addition of allspice really goes well with the green beans however I added some garlic powder and crushed red hot pepper and a little white pepper I though it blended well. Thanks for the recipe..
Hahaha I so impressed my boyfriend who is from the Middle East and his mother too :-). The only thing, I felt the 1 1/2 teaspoon of allspice was a bit much for me so next time will put half the amount. By the way this makes al ot of food. Consider cutting in half.
This was simply beef and green beans with tomato sauce. I doubled the allspice, added garlic, pepper and served over rice. Still ended up with the same bland dish, beef+green beans+tomato sauce. Very disappointing.
I made this dish exactly as the original recipe directed. It was quite watery . . . more like soup. I would definitely recommend you serve this over rice because of all the juice. It was pretty good but I probably won't make it again.
This was not a recipe my family enjoyed. Even my husband who eats almost anything did not care for it.
