Khoreshte Beh (Persian Beef and Quince Stew) Recipe

Science and Health

Khoreshte beh is a classic Persian dish of quince and beef shank stewed slowly in a pomegranate base and served over steamed basmati rice. Iranian Jews commonly eat it as a pre-fast meal for Yom Kippur. Quince and pomegranate are both in season, as the holiday lands at the transition from summer to fall. Its sweet-tart flavor profile has you going back for extra helpings, making it a perfect dish to fill up on before a day of fasting.
