Khorake Loobia Sabz (Green Bean Stew)

In Persian cuisine there are plenty of dishes with beans such as Rice with Green Beans and Rice with Broad Beans, but one of the most popular one in Iran is Khorake Loobia Sabz or green bean stew. This stew is made with a mixture of beef, green beans, carrot, potato, onion and tomato paste.

Green beans, also knows as french beans or snap beans, are tender edible pods which are a very rich source of vitamins and minerals. For this recipe I suggest selecting the beans that are free from brown spots, have a vibrant green color and snap when broken.

Also in this recipe you can simply replace beef with lamb or chicken according to your taste and preference.

    Salem. We’ve got same receipe in Algeria. We add garlic. Fresh tomatoe and persil. Mushrums instead of carrots. But love them both.

  2. Terry


    I think 1 hour is a little to little a time for your meat to be succulent, and I would omit the carrots and add 2 dried limes when frying the meat

    I’ve made this recipe a few times and it’s absolutely delicious. I have on a couple of occasions slow cooked lamb shoulder for pulled lamb instead of lamb chunks, for those slightly more fussy meat eaters (adding it around 20mins before serving). Thank you 🙂

    The green bean stew was extra tasty! Thank you. I think next time I will not put potatoes and more green beans. It will be green bean only stew. It is delicious.
