Yarkoie (M, KLP, TNT)
Source: Family recipe
Serves: 4 to 6

2 pounds flanken or beef breast
3 very large onions
2 pounds potatoes (very optional, mostly I don't use)
2 cups beef stock
Salt, pepper and paprika to taste
Tomatoes, chopped (optional)

Cut the meat in cubes and stir fry until golden, take it off the pan and in the same oil fry the chopped onion until it's very dark (almost burnt out).

Put the meat again and add the stock and seasonings (at this point my MIL adds also chopped tomatoes). Simmer for 30 to 40 minutes and add potatoes in large pieces, and cook for another 30 minutes. The gravy will be thick and dark.

Poster's Notes:
This is a family recipe, from my mother's side. You can use flanken, beef breast or maybe even brisket. Using 2 pounds you can feed from 4 very hungry to 6 people. My mother used to serve it with matzo balls all year around, my MIL serves it with white rice, I serve it with noodles (like penne).
