This is a Sephardic meat stew that is enjoyed on Shabbat (our day of rest). Although I'm an Ashkenazi Jew, I've always loved this on Shabbat, especially when my sister makes it. Don't worry if you don't know what kouclas is, once you see the ingredients for it, you'll understand what it is, even if you don't understand the definition of the word. Each ingredient is also served in separate dishes (eg potatoes, eggs, etc). It looks like a banquet meal like that.
