How to make it
- Put the yoghurt, lemon rind, lemon juice, garlic, 1 tbsp. of oil, cumin, salt and pepper in a large ziplock bag, seal and squeeze/ shake to mix. Add the beef to the ziplock, seal and shake to coat. Let marinate in the fridge for 1 hr.
- After the meat is done marinating, heat 1 tbsp. of oil in a dutch oven, or a stew pot. Add the beef in batches and sautee for about 5 min., or until brown on all sides. Remove the meat and set aside.
- If you have liquid in your pot at this point, let it reduce until thickened and add to the meat.
- Add the remaining tbsp. of oil to the pot and fry the onion util softened and lightly caramelised.
- Pour the wine into the pot, stir in any glazed bits from the bottom and bring to a boil. Reduce the heat and return the meat to the pot, then stir in tomatoes, tomato paste, sugar, oregano and thyme.
- Cover with a lid and simmer on low for about 1 1/2 - 2 hrs, or until beef is tender. If you run out of liquid during cooking, add a little chicken broth.
- Stir in the olives and artichokes and simmer for 10 more min. Then stir in parsely and turn off the heat. Serve hot over rice.
- For those who don't like cooking with wine, you can substitute chicken broth. This dish is equally great with lamb.
