Egyptian Lahma Bil Basal (Beef in Rich Onion Sauce)




Ingredients
1 lb stewing beef (you can cut each piece in half if you want)
4 onion (sliced super thin)
2 chicken bouillon cubes
1 bay leaf
2 tablespoons butter
1 tablespoon canola oil (or oil of your choice, but NOT olive oil for this)
water
salt & pepper
Directions
Wash the meat well. Put into a saucepan with butter and oil. Cook until all beef lightly browned.
Add all sliced onions, bouillon cubes, salt & pepper, bay leaf and stir around cooking on medium-low heat for 15 minutes.
Add water, approximately 1-1/2 cups, turn to low, cover and cook for 2 hours or more.
Check during cooking, add more water if too dry. But the onions should give enough liquid with initial water you added.
When finished you should have super tender beef with a thick oniony sauce. The onions will have cooked down to a thick rich sauce.
Serve with rice, pita bread or your favorite pasta, yes pasta; makes a great, different sauce really.
