Tava is a favorite dish in Turkey. They make it wonderful, this is a recipe that I made as close to it as I could. The best way to eat it is to wrap it in Middle Eastern Flat Bread which you can get at your local grocery store bakery or frozen section.
INGREDIENTS (for 4 servings):
- 2 pounds beef stew meat, cut into 1/2 inch pieces
- 1 small red onion, diced
- 1 medium green bell pepper, seeded and diced
- 2 fresh tomatoes, diced
- 1 green chile pepper, seeded and diced (optional)
- 1/2 teaspoon chile paste
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
Place the beef into a 1 quart glass baking dish. Mix in the red onion, green pepper, tomato, and if using, the chile pepper. Blend in the chile paste by hand.
Cook, uncovered, for 30 to 45 minutes in the preheated oven, or until the meat is no longer pink. Serve hot with flatbread, or wrapped in a pita.
