Great, easy dinner. I used olive oil and cooked the whole dish in a dutch oven. I left out the water, because there was plenty of liquid from the beef and onion. I served this over brown rice, low fat, healthy dish that tastes wonderful.

I rgeularly make a variation of this dish. My husband was raised in Damascus & he loves it. I use cinnamon instead of allspice ( I'll give this a try someday ). I brown the meat in butter, chopped onion & cinnamon to change the taste of the meat. I then add the fresh green beans-cover & steam 10 minutes. I then add a 28oz can of diced tomatoes & 1 8oz can of tomato sauce..sit on low for an hou & the serve over rice. DELICIOUS!

This recipe is awsome I really think that the addition of allspice really goes well with the green beans however I added some garlic powder and crushed red hot pepper and a little white pepper I though it blended well. Thanks for the recipe..
