Mediterranean Ground Beef Stew recipe

I picked this delicious recipe from my mother-inlaw. It’s one of their popular food in North Sudan (Africa). I use to hate too much tomato sauce in food, but I absolutly love it this recipe. I find this version of kufta, it’s more moister and could warm it up and still feel like it’s freshly cooked.
