Fava Bean, Artichoke Heart and Beef Stew


  • Prep Time : 15 min
  • Cook Time : 1 hour
  • Ready Time : 1 hour, 15 min


6 Servings


  • 1 pound shelled fava beans I used frozen
  • 1 pound lamb or beef stew meat
  • 3 cloves garlic, finely chopped
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons ginger
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons salt
  • 1 teaspoon turmeric
  • 1 large handful fresh cilantro, finely chopped
  • 1 large handful fresh parsley, finely chopped
  • 8 artichoke hearts
  • 1 preserved lemon rinsed and cut into quarters


Place pressure cooker or Dutch oven over high heat.  Add oil and brown meat.  Add the onions, garlic, spices, and herbs and cook a few minutes more.

Add about 2 cups of water, cover the pressure cooker or dutch oven, and increase the heat to high. When pressure has been achieved, lower the heat to medium to medium-high, and cook with pressure for about 30 minutes if using the Dutch oven cook for about an hour.

Bring down the pressure or uncover the Dutch oven and add the fava beans, artichoke hearts and lemons. If necessary, add enough water so that the artichokes and beans are completely submerged when pushed down with a spoon.

Cover the pot and bring to a boil over high heat.  Lower the heat and cook for 20 – 30 minutes, until the broth is thick.

Serve with crusty bread or with mashed sweet or white potatoes.

    Could you do this in a slow cooker? How would you go about it?

  2. You probably could. I would suggest browning the meat in a pan and then adding it to the slow cooker with all but the artichokes and fava beans, for about 2 hours on low. Then add the final ingredients and cook another 30 minutes, but you can try adding it all at once, the beans will get more mush, but I actually like it that way.
