Sweet & Sour Beef Stew
(Beef Tzimmes)
Tzimmes is enjoyed all year round in Israel, but particularly during Passover. It is another example of how meat can be combined with vegetables and fruit-in this case, the fruit being prunes.

What You Need:
  • 2 pounds boneless beef brisket
  • 2 tablespoons shortening
  • 1 can (10 ounces) condensed consomme
  • 1 soup can water
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground allspice
  • 3 medium potatoes cut in half
  • 3 medium carrots cut in half crosswise and lengthwise
  • 2 medium onions, quartered
  • 1 cup pitted cooked prunes
  • cup water
  • cup all-purpose flour
  • Parsley (for garnish)

  • How To Cook:
    1. Brown beef in shortening in a large, heavy saucepan; pour off fat.

    2. Add consomme, 1 soup can water, honey, lemon juice and allspice; cover and cook over low heat 1 hour.

    3. Add potatoes, carrots and onions; cook 30 minutes.

    4. Add prunes; cook 10 minutes more, or until done, stirring occasionally.

    5. Remove meat and vegetables to a platter; keep warm.

    6. Gradually blend cup water into flour until smooth; slowly stir into sauce and cook, stirring, until thickened.

    7. Serve with meat and vegetables; garnish with parsley.
