Ingredients

Steak (500g – 1.10 pound, chopped into extra small pieces)
Green sweet chile pepper (2 peppers)
Green hot chile pepper (1 pepper)
Onion (1)
Garlic (5 cloves)
Tomato (1 medium-size)
Cumin (Half tsp)
Paprika (1 tbsp)
Black pepper (1 tbsp)
Olive oil (4 tbsp)
Tomato paste (1.5 tablespoons)
Pepper paste (Half tbsp)
Salt to taste

Step 1. 

Start with preheating your oven to 200 degrees. Then chop your steak. If you are going to do the chopping process instead of your butcher, be careful to chop the steak into very small pieces. Then place them on your baking tray.

Step 2.

Finely chop the onion lengthwise and thin, then add it to the meat. Chop the garlic (peel and cut into 4 equal parts). Add them too. Chop the peppers into rounds and add to the tray. Peel the tomato, chop into cubes and add them.

Tip: Tomato is a very important ingredient for this dish. That is to say, this dish is meaningless without tomatoes, but the amount of tomato added is very important. If you add more than a medium tomato, it will dilute the dish more than necessary and spoil the taste. That’s why a medium tomato is a perfect size for this dish.

Step 3.

Now pour the oil and prepare the tomato paste. The way we prepare the tomato paste is a little different. Bring a little less than 1 cup of water for this. Put the tomato paste and pepper paste in it and mix it with water until the pastes dissolve. Drizzle it over the meal along with the water.

Step 4.

After adding all the spices, mix them all together and bake in the preheated oven until the water in the meal is completely gone. And voila!

Tip: Even if you’re a spice lover, use only the spices in the ingredient list for this meal. Otherwise, it may not provide the exact taste we want.

Tip: If you think that the meat is still not tendered when the food has completely drained the water, add a little more water and continue baking.

Tip: The fact that the food is few juicy is also an option that improves its taste. Keep it a little juicy to catch it.

Suggestions:

  1. One of the side dishes that best suits this meal is Turkish-style strained yogurt. To get it, cover a strainer with a paper towel. Put 2 cups of Greek yogurt on it. Put the strainer in the refrigerator with a bowl under it and let it sit for at least 4 hours until the water runs out completely. Occasionally replace the paper towel with a dry one. Then take the completely drained yogurt on a plate, add some salt and mix.
  2. Serve with a bowl of green salad.
  3. If the meal is left for the next day, put it in the fridge and reheat it using the oven instead of the microwave.
