This dish is similar to Bazella, with its tomato-based broth. In this dish, the main ingredients are fasoulia, a type of lima bean and meat. Cubes of lamb may be substituted for the beef. I learned how to prepare this dish while I was living in Syria for a year, studying abroad. Please note: if you use dry lima beans, they must soak in water overnight. The shells may come off of them when you begin to cook them, but this is normal.
