This is different than our normal evening meals - which is exactly what I was looking for! I wanted a stew, but not a traditional American type of dish. This was perfect for something different and, I think, better than the traditional stew. I followed the recipe and I like it as is. Now, with that said, I screwed up the recipe. I didn't read that it should have been 4 onions until it was nearly done. I only used 1. It needed the other 3. So that's why I say I like it as is. Last note, I did let it simmer for nearly 4.5 hours. The beef stayed pretty true to its original form until the last 20 minutes or so of simmering. And then suddenly it fell apart and was amazingly tender.

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.

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!

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.
