Lubia Polo (Green Bean Rice)

Reviewed: Oct. 28, 2010
Sorry but as a persian this seems more like a arab, indian with a hint of mexican recipe than anything else. ground beef=wrong curry=wrong jalapeno=wrong and did i hear you say BROTH? although it may be good for the untrained persian the real deal recipe is so comforting that you can eat it over and over and over! Stew meat, beef - Fry meat in 2 tbl of oil until browned(season with salt and pepper (turmeric as well). (Drain excess oil) Return meat to pan, add one can of tomato sauce. You can caramelize 1 onion in another pan and add to meat. Simmer on medium/low until tender. Add water if needed as it simmers to keep it from drying up. Last 5 minutes, add 2 cans of green beans. (drained) Rice - Boil rice, up to 5 minutes. (do not cook rice all the way. Semi crunchy still) Remove and rinse. Add 4 tbl oil and 2 tbl of butter in a pot large enough for rice and meat until butter melts..(med/high) Add 1/3 of rice. 1/3 of sauce, ever so lightly combine, rolling it. Repeat 2 more times. Cook on med/high for 7-10min uncovered. Cover with lid (wrap lid with kitchen towel or few sheets of paper towels. Cook for additional 40 min. ( this will crisp the bottom of the rice. (Ta dihg) Get a large enough plate, place on top of pan and flip it. This will look like an upside cake. Serve with plain yogurt mixed with chopped cucumbers and some garlic and or dill weed. Serve it up!
