EGYPTIAN - Kebab Halla Stewed Meat

By ali eletre

  • Ingredient:

  • • 1 kg beef

  • • 2 onions, chopped finely

  • • 1 teaspoon cinnamon

  • • 2 tablespoons flour

  • • 5-7 garlic cloves, crushed

  • • cooking oil

  • • salt and pepper

  1. Cut beef into bite-sized cubes. Mix flour, cinnamon and seasoning and roll meat in this mixture. Cook meat, onion, and pinch of salt over very slow flame. When the juice is re-absorbed, add garlic and cooking oil and fry lightly. Add water to barely cover and cook over low heat for one hour, adding more hot water, along the side of the pot, whenever the level of the juice is too low. Serve with the juice, which should be fairly concentrated.

I made this tonight for dinner and it was very good. I added cauliflower in the stew to include some veggies. I really like the flavor of cinnamon in the beef. It was a pleasant surprise.

I love cinnamon in meats. I have not done it with beef, I will give this one a try.

The cinnamon used in this beef recipe will give it a flavor that seals in the juices. This is a very low carb dish and should have no more than 3g of carbs per serving.
