Confession: Even as an experienced cook, I sometimes find artichokes daunting. Forget to drop the raw, freshly cut vegetable into lemon water during preparation and it quickly turns brown. Stop paying attention while cutting off the pointy end of the leaves, and get pricked. And then there’s the choke, that little hairball at the center of the green globe. Don’t scrape it all out and, well, it ain’t called the choke for nothing.

As I first bit into this delicious Georgian beef stew, I was intrigued by the fact that, as with many early Jewish recipes I have found around the world, the beef, often a tough inexpensive cut, is first boiled in water until it is almost tender and then layered with flavor from onions, spices, and bright red bell peppers. No browning the meat first for this recipe! After slowly simmering the beef for a few hours, you are rewarded with a melt-in-your-mouth, silky stew—a perfect main dish for Passover or any special occasion throughout the year. And, as they say in Georgia, —ghmert`ma shegargos, or bon appétit!
