Ma Halima's Beef Suqaar
This is Minnesota-based home cook Ma Halima's quick version of suqaar, a meat-and-vegetable stir-fry that's popular in her home country of Somalia. Complex flavor is built with spices like cumin and turmeric; a hit of cilantro and lime juice at the end give it a pop of freshness. Serve it as Ma Halima does, with plain rice or pilaf, chopped lettuce, and lemon wedges to squeeze on top. The recipe is featured in the cookbook, In Bibi’s Kitchen by Hawa Hassan with Julia Turshen.
