Tajine beef manestra

Pasta disguised as rice to absorb all the juices of the rest of the dish.

Moshari manestra tajine


  • Beef steak, in thin slices
  • Mushrooms
  • 1 onion
  • 3 peppers of different colours
  • 4 tomatoes
  • 1 tomato can
  • Half garlic
  • Soy sauce
  • 1 beer bottle
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 500 gr your favourite small pasta
  • Cheese for topping


Here is an easy recipe. The trick is to have lots of water when the pasta is added so the pasta never dries.

All vegetables need to go to a food processor. First onions and garlic. While frying them process the rest of the vegetables.

Add the mushrooms to the frying frenzy with some herbs. Add the beef.

Once they start browning, add the beer and cover.

After 5 min add the remaining ingredients and simmer at low heat for a while, stirring occasionally.

Once almost there, add the pasta. They should be completely immersed in water, if not add more.

Put in over for 30 min. In the end add some grated cheese on top and keep in oven until the cheese melts.
