Quick Beef & Bean Stew – Kuru Fasulye

Traditionally dried haricot beans and braising steak would be used for this hearty stew – however for those of us who havent got time to soak beans over night and stew meat for 3 hours, my quick Kuru Fasulye recipe gives the same warming results in just a fraction of the time.

Serves 4

2 sirloin steaks – cut into small chunks

3 tins of cannellini beans

1 small onion – finely chopped

1 tbsp tomato paste

1 tbsp pepper paste

pinch of chili flakes

6 cups water

1 tbsp olive oil

Salt & Pepper

Brown meat in 1 tbsp olive oil over a medium flame and add onions, heating until translucent.

Drain beans and add to pot, stirring around for a minute or two.

Dissolve tomato and pepper paste in a cup of hot water and add to pan, along with a further 5 cups.

Bring to a simmer and cover. Cook for 45 minutes, stirring gently from time to time. The beans should be whole, not mushy.

Season to taste (adding a pinch of chili if you prefer) and serve with pilaf and bread.

Afiyet Olsun
