Loviya ho'rak (Meat and kidney bean salad)
"Loviya ho'rak" is one another variety of "No'hot ho'rak". It is very rich in protein, iron and minerals. Usually it is served with sliced onions.
300 gr of meat, beef or lamb
200 gr of kidney beans
Salt to taste
1 tbsp of ground coriander
1 tsp of cumin
30 gr of butter
Put meat in a cold water about 1.5 liters and bring to boil. Scoop out all the foam that will float to the surface. Boil meat for 2 hours over medium heat with a half covered lid. Stir every half hour. At the end add in spices and salt.
Separately boil kidney beans with 1 liter of water over low heat with a closed lid. Add salt only after kidney beans are soft. If you put salt earlier beans will not soften.
Take out all the meat and cut in big chunks. Drain all the water from beans and put in all the butter. Mix well until butter will melt properly. Put beans on a plate, place meat over it and sprinkle with sliced onions. Onions must be sliced and mashed with 1 tsp of white vinegar.
Serve and enjoy this healthy and high in protein meal.
