Ingredients: 1 kilo of lean beef, 2 large onions, 250 grams of walnuts, 500 grams of mushrooms, 6 cloves of garlic, 2 bay leaves, 1 tbs of hot red pepper, 6 tbs of oil, salt (amount dependent upon personal preference), 1 level tsp of blue fenugreek, 1 tsp of dried coriander and 8 tbs of white wine vinegar.
Preparation: Cut the beef into medium sized pieces and add, together with 2 bay leaves, to a deep pot containing 8 tbs of white wine vinegar. Partly cover and cook on a low heat until the vinegar disappears and then add 200 ml of water. Continue to cook on a low heat until the liquid disappears, stirring occasionally. Once the liquid has disappeared, add 6 tbs of oil and increase heat to medium. Stir.
