Recipe Directions

1. Mix all the spices together in a small bowl and add a pinch of salt and pepper.

2. Put the meat in a large bowl and grate it with the spice mixture. Then cover it with plastic wrap and place it in the fridge for 3 hours or preferably from the night before.

3. When we are ready to cook, heat our oil in a roaster over medium heat. Add the meat and fry for 5 minutes. Add the onion and fry for another 2-3 minutes.

4. Add the tomatoes, the water, the broth and mix them. Bring to a boil, then cover the roaster and put it in the oven for 4 hours.

5. One hour before the end of cooking, remove the roaster from the oven and open it. Add the pumpkin pieces and the dates. Cover again and put back in the oven. At the end of cooking the meat should be very soft.

6. At the same time we make our bulgur wheat. Put it into a bowl, add the boiling water, the salt, the pepper, the oil and mix them. Cover the bowl with plastic wrap and let it for 15 minutes.

7. Serve the beef with the bulgur wheat. Add the roasted almonds and the coriander leaves on top.
