The Somali Museum builds understanding between Somalis and non-Somalis through art.

  • Servings: 4-6


  • 3.3 lbs. beef stew meat, cut into small chunks
  • 3 Tbsp. olive oil
  • 1 large onion, finely diced
  • 2 Tbsp. tomato paste
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 tsp. ground cumin
  • 1 tsp. ground coriander seeds
  • ½ tsp. ground black pepper
  • 1½ cups water
  • Salt to taste


  1. Cook the meat, onion, garlic, salt and water in a covered large saucepan over low heat for about an hour. The water will have almost evaporated by this time. Add more water to keep the beef from drying out.
  2. Add the spices and tomato paste, and cook for about ten minutes until thoroughly absorbed.
  3. Serve with rice, any kind of bread or a salad.
