Levantine Recipe: Yogurt Stew (Shakriyeh)

Shakriyeh, is what we call this dish.

It is truly very easy to make, and very soothing to eat.

All you need is beef cubes, yogurt, labaneh (which you must find available in your Arab supermarket), and some spice.

The pine nuts are just optional. I love them, so I add them. But you can have this dish without them. It is a dish served with rice. Many Arabs love to cook their rice with vermicelli, but I like to keep my dishes light during the week so I cook it using long grain rice.

I took the recipe from my mother, but also have used some additions from other food bloggers so it is a mix, but since the dish is not complex it is not very different from one person to another. Some people prefer to use lamb, but I always go for beef if I can.
