Dawood Basha is one of the most famous Levantine stews, especially in Arabic cuisine restaurants, you are very likely to see this dish on the menus. It is a flavoursome dish that happens to be a crowd pleaser. While the classic recipe calls for using lamb meat, and usually not in the form of Kofta but rather as cubes and at times on the bone, I have chosen to go for kofta Kebabs in this recipe, made with OBE Organic Beef. First, I wanted the choice to be organic meat for an all organic recipe, and OBE Organic Beef is widely available in the UAE. Secondly, beef is leaner than lamb too so it is a good option when you are limiting the amount of fat in the recipe. I have substituted the classic samneh (traditional clarified butter) with my beautiful olive oil for a leaner and healthier option too. With that said, there is no compromise on the flavour here. Try it this way and you will see that it tastes just as good.
Note that you can shape the Kofta into balls or kebabs.
