The flavor of this was really good. The beef ended up overcooked. One thing that I would change is to brown the beef in two batches. I used frozen green beans that were not thawed, so I think heating them contributed to the overcooking problem also. I think the flavor was fine, so if I had to do that again I would make sure the green beans were thawed first to avoid overcooking the rest of the dish.

I didn't find this spicy so maybe next time I'll add the garlic & pepper flakes. Served with couscous it was a very satisfying meal. Made for ZWT4. NEXT DAY EDIT: When this dish sat for about four hours the flavors developed so sweetly and so beautitfully I had to change my rating from 4-5 stars. TFS

This was comfort food in my house when I was growing up. My grandmother brought this recipe from Syria with her and it was passed through the family. We always had it over rice, and that's how I serve it to this day. Thanks for reminding me that we haven't had it for too long.
