Stew style Qeema

Assalmo alaikum,

Today was such an amazing day it was my kids last day of school ,my second oldest son promoted to seventh grade he is going to junior high (middle school) mashAllah !! Kids grow up so fast I can still remeber the first day he called me "ammi"(mom) and the day he took his first steps,my eyes are filled with tears as I am writing mashAllah so many memories and many to make in sha Allah :) A mother's is always filled with Dua's (prayers) for her kids for their health and success!!!


Qeema (ground meat) is always my go to dish as you can cook it in fairly less amount of time and my kids love it ,leftovers are used easily in sandwiches ,quick quesadillas or with pasta so I love to make it .Also Ramadan is coming closer this could be good for Sehri or suhoor too.This recipe is really delicious and has very nice flavors ,so do try it and enjoy it!!!
