About this recipe: This dish is rich in flavor due to the slow cooking of the beef with all the ingredients. The beef can be cooked to tenderness a day before so you can skim off the fat making it more heart healthy. Do not use pressure cooker for this dish. This is a very versatile dish. It can be served with rice or bread or boiled potatoes.
