French Beans, Rice and Beef Recipes

Ingredients :

2 tbsp butter or margarine

1 large onion, chopped

1 lb stewing beef, cubed

2 garlic cloves, crushed

1 tsp ground cinnamon

1 tsp ground cumin

1 tsp ground turmeric

1 lb tomatoes, chopped

2 tbsp tomato puree

1.5 cups water

2.5 cups French beans, trimmed and halved

salt and ground black pepper

Method :

Melt the butter or margarine in a large saucepan or flameproof casserole and fry the onion until golden. Add the beef and fry until evenly browned, then add the garlic, spices, tomatoes, tomato puree and water. Season with salt and pepper. Bring to the boil, then simmer over a low heat for about 30 minutes. Add the French beans and continue cooking for a further 15 minutes until the meat is tender and most of the meat juices have evaporated.

Meanwhile, prepare the rice. Drain, then boil it in salted water for about 5 minutes. Reduce the heat and simmer very gently for 10 minutes or until it is half-cooked. Drain, and rinse the rice in warm water. Wash and dry the saucepan. Heat 1 tbsp of the melted butter in the pan and stir in about a third of the rice, add a layer of rice, then the remaining meat and finish with another layer of rice. Pour the remaining melted butter over the rice and cover the pan with a clean dish towel. Secure with the lid and then steam the rice for 30-45 minutes over a low heat. Take 3 tbsp of cooked rice from the pan and mix with the saffron water. Serve the cooked rice and beef on a large dish and sprinkle the saffron rice on top.
