This Syrian recipe was given to me by a friend. I love it because after I make it, I can just pop it in the freezer and eat it whenever! Serve hot with rice mixed with brown egg noodles. Enjoy!

  • Stir water, tomato sauce, salt, allspice, and pepper together in a small bowl; pour into the skillet and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium-low, place a cover on the skillet, and cook until the meat pulls away from the neck bones, about 45 minutes.

  • Put green beans and potatoes into the skillet so they are in liquid, replace cover, and continue cooking until the beans are tender and the potatoes are cooked through, about 15 minutes. Remove and discard bones before serving.

The photograph shows carrots and chickpeas which are not in the ingredients but I added. I also added more allspice and some 7spice. I would have added a bit more meat as there's not much on neck bones but even without the added meat there was the lamb flavor. This is a good and easy recipe. I also served mine over a cracked wheat/vermicelli mixture a opposed to rice. Read More
