Garlic beef with olives

1 1/2 tbsp olive oil
1 1/2 cups beef cut into 2" cubes
2 cups tomato chopped into cubes
1/2 tbsp cumin ground
1/2 tsp black pepper ground
1 cup pitted whole green olives from a container
10 to 15 cloves of garlic whole
3/4 tbsp lemon juice
1 tbsp parsley minced

Heat oil on medium heat and cook the beef for about 3 to 4 minutes until it is lightly browned.  Add tomato, cumin, pepper, olives and mix.  Then nestle the garlic cloves among the meat.  Cover tightly so the water will not escape while it is cooking.  Cook on low heat for about 45 minutes to 1 hour, depending on the meat.  Check in about 40 minutes into cooking to see if the meat is cooked.

There will be about 4 to 5 tbsp of liquid left.  Remove from heat and add the lemon juice and parsley.  Serve hot with crusty bread.

This recipe doesn't have any salt.  Recipe ingredients inspired and adapted from the book Cooking at the Kasbah.

Have a blessed Ramadan everyone.
