2 tablespoons ground cumin

2 teaspoons turmeric

1/2 teaspoon black pepper

1 1/2 lbs beef chuck, with bones or stewing beef


1 onion, peeled

2 ripe medium tomatoes, left whole

5 cups boiling water

6 small boiling potatoes

How to prepare:

  1. Mix cumin, tumeric, and pepper.
  2. Put beef in a large pot and sprinkle with salt and spice mixture.
  3. Cook for about 5 minutes, turning occasionally.
  4. Add onion and tomatoes and enough boiling water to cover meat.
  5. Bring to a boil and skim foam from surface.
  6. Cover and cook over low heat for about 2 hours.
  7. Peel the potatoes and add to the soup, if necessary, add water to cover.

Cook over low heat until meat and potatoes are tender (about 1 additional hour) Adjust seasoning, remove onion and tomatoes (optional).

note- you can replace the spices with Hawaij. It is a distinctive Yemenite spice. It is a combination of turmeric, black pepper, and cumin, with a small amount of cardamom. If you don't have it, you can use equal amounts of turmeric and cumin to one-fourth of the amount of black pepper, and just a pinch of ground cardamom.

Serves 6-7
