1. Hi Natalie

      Sorry for the mistake. It is a pint of beef stock that was used to make the recipe 🙂

    I made this yesterday to surprise my (Kurdish) hubby because I can’t usually cook his country’s foods.

    We both enjoyed it. Might add only 1 tin of tomatoes next time because it was a bit too tomatoey, otherwise it was nice 🙂

    Turkish here and never heard of using courgette or potatoes in this dish before. Also we never add tomatoes in chunks in it, we use salça (fermented tomato/paprika paste) instead. It is a staple food because it is a simple dish with a few ingredients. Some also put a few dried whole red hot chili peppers depending on region. You might try putting beef jerky or any kind of dried meat instead of stew cut meat too, it is another version we make.

    A personal suggestion: instead of canned beans buy them fresh and boil them on your own, and cook it without beef stock. Main ingredient of this dish is good quality fresh beans and taste of beef stock gets ahead of beans’ taste. Also we mostly use butter instead of olive oil while making it with meat.

    Bean stew made with olive oil is a different dish and we dont put meat into it. That dish is where we put tomatoes in chunks, with sweet green chili peppers.
