Beef Shank Layered Fatteh

A special savory meal that includes the perfect mesh of textures and flavors.  Layered with chickpeas, hummus, yogurt with garlic, beef shanks and topped with parsley and toasted bread!

Start by making the hummus

In a food processor, mix the chickpeas, garlic clove, lemon juice, tahini, salt, plain yogurt, olive oil, and ice cubes for 5-7 minutes or in a blender for 1 minute until smooth. 

Now for the Fatteh...

Place Beef Shanks in a pressure cooker filled half way with water. Sprinkle salt and seven spices. Set for an hour.

n a large serving plate, spread a full layer of premade or homemade hummus. Mix the yogurt with minced garlic and salt, then spread over the layer of hummus.

Once the beef shanks are finished, sauté with butter on high heat sprinkling on each side seven spices and salt. 

Then, break the shanks apart using a spoon. Spread the broken beef shanks on top of the yogurt.

Pour over the drained chickpeas on top of the beef shanks.

Toast pine nuts or slivered almonds in the same pan in which you sautéed the beef shanks with avocado oil.

Garnish the finished Fatteh with the toasted nuts, minced parsley, and toasted bread.  Enjoy!
