Beef and Herb Khoresh

This is an Iranian (Persian) dish and i found the recipe in an old cookbook. It says there are Vegetarian versions so if anyone has one, please let me know!

You need:

3 tablespoons Olive Oil
1 Large Onion - chopped
450g Stewing Beef - cubed
2 teaspoons Ground Turmeric
1/2 teaspoon Ground Cinnamon
600ml Cold Water
25g Fresh Parsley - chopped
25g Fresh Chives - chopped
400g tin Red Kidney Beans - drained
juice of 1 Lemon
Salt and Black Pepper

Heat 2 tablespoons of the Oil in a large pan and fry the Onion for 3-4 minutes until lightly coloured. Add the Beef and fry for another 10 minutes until browned on all sides. Add the Turmeric and Cinnamon and cook for another minute, then add the Waterand bring to the boil. Cover and simmer for 45 mins, stirring every now and then.

Heat the remaining Oil in a pan and then fry the Parsley and Chives over a medium heat for 2-3 minutes, stirring all the time.

Add the Kidney beans and the fried Herbs into the Beef, along with the Lemon Juice. Season with Salt and Pepper to taste, then simmer the stew for a further 35 minutes to allow the sauce to reduce and thicken slightly. Once the meat is tender, serve on a bed of rice or cous-cous
