Diced beef and tomato is the perfect food to scoop your crusty bread into.  Minimum effort is required for this simple traditional dish.  This basic beef and tomato recipe is what our farmers used to eat for a simple and quick bite.

Diced beef and tomato is usually eaten with fresh Arabic bread alongside other favourite staples – labneh dip (strained yogurt), olives, Mana-eesh (traditional herb pizzas), and vegetables. This makes a crowd-pleasing starter. You can also serve it on mini bite-size toasts for your next dinner party.
