Chickpea beef stew
You can use a can of chickpeas instead of the uncooked ones, but why? It does not save time and this will taste better! If you want to make this an even more interesting dish, add uncooked eggs (in their shells) to the liquid and let them cook inside the stew. (can add 1 more cup of water too) The eggs will turn a golden brown and taste delicious with a bit of salt!

Notes & Tips:

If you are going to a butcher, any cut of meat that can be slow cooked works for this recipe. The better the cut, the tastier it is but depends on your budget. If you live in Israel you can ask for #2, #4, or #5 or any stew meat. Serve with rice!
