Ghormeh sabzi (qormeh sabzi or قورمهسبزی in Persian) is a stew made with meat and fresh herbs. Ghormeh Sabzi is considered as the national dish in Iran. Ghormeh is the Azeri word for “stew” and Sabzi means “herbs” in Persian.

Ghormeh Sabzi is a delicious lemony stew. It is prepared with a blend of herbs, mainly composed of parsley, leeks, green onions, cilantro, as well as dried leaves of fenugreek (shanbalileh). This mixture of herbs is very often fried before being cooked with meat (lamb or beef), red beans, onions and Limoo Amani (dried lemons).

Other Iranian stews are absolutely worth trying, such as Khoresh Gheymeh, Khoresh Fesenjan or Khoresh Bademjan!
