I worked at a hotel on the Kinneret in Israel, where we made this recipe for every Sabbath. As there are few ingredients, use the best quality you can, especially for the beef stock. If possible use homemade or organic. As for the beef, use a good quality cheap cut, such as chuck steak. Feel free to add your own touches to this recipe. Sometimes I use venison instead of beef, or add a handful of forest mushrooms. It's a great base to build off of.
