Persian Beef, Herb and Kidney Bean Stew

This classic Persian stew, called ghormeh sabzi, often is regarded as Iran's national dish. Dried limes and an assortment of fresh herbs that are fried give the sauce a unique flavor and an unusual deep-green hue. In our simplified version, we streamlined the method and used easier-to-source ingredients, including opting for canned beans. If you prefer, use an equal amount of boneless lamb shoulderin place of the beef. Serve with plenty of steamed basmati rice and a cucumber-tomato salad.

Tip

Don't discard the bean liquid when draining the cans. Using it instead of water or broth adds both body and depth of flavor. If you accidentally throw it out, substitute an equal amount of chicken broth or vegetable broth, or even water, though the stew will have a thinner consistency.
