Fantastic!!! I've made this several times so far, using both fresh tomato & canned diced tomatoes. The fresh tomatoes are definitely better! I usually leave out the ginger because my husband isn't a fan of ginger (though I definitely am!). Also, instead of beef bullion & water, I usually use beef broth. Definitely a staple in my home! thanks so much for sharing!

Your husband definitely has a winner here! I served it over a barley mix, and it was great. I did let the meat cook longer so that it would be very tender. I found that it made 2 servings as posted, not 3. Thanks for sharing your husbands recipe.

We had this for dinner last night. It was delicious. I did have to make a few changes; I got home to find myself w/o dry parsley flakes and no tomatoes in sight. Instead of parsley, I used Savory and instead of tomato, I used tomato paste; as Marich suggested. The meat was sooooo tender; I did let the beef simmer for about 35 to 40 minutes, the end result was well worth it. My husband had seconds and that is a HUGE compliment in it's self. I served with white rice. Thank you posting. I will be adding to my dinner rotation.

This was delicious! Made as directed with a few MINOR changes. I cooked it longer and had no fresh tomato on hand so used a few tablespoons of tomato paste. Wow! So much flavor. Served with couscous and a salad. Thank you and I will definitely make this again.

No wonder you stole your DH's! This recipe lives up to it's name. And it's so quick & easy! I totally wasn't sure about my chuck roast, cut into stew meat, cooking in such a short amount of time but it was tender & delicious! Mostly made as directed except I used fresh ginger (grated like the onion), fresh parsley & I forgot the tomato at the store so I used a 15 oz can of petite diced tomatoes (including their liquid, so I used the 1/4 cup of water option for the last simmer). I served this recipe over tiny flower shaped pasta, which was the closest I could get to couscous. Thanks for sharing Hicham's creation, Nasseh! Made & enjoyed for Photo tag.
