1 cup finely chopped green onions (green part only)
½ cup finely chopped Italian flat-leaf parsley
¼ cup finely chopped cilantro
¼ cup finely chopped chives
¼ cup finely chopped fenugreek leaves
1 ½ cups water
or more as needed
salt and ground black pepper to taste
4 dried Persian limes (limoo amani)
or more to taste
1 (15 ounce) can red kidney beans
drained and rinsed
Heat 2 tablespoons oil in a large pot over medium-high heat. Add onion; cook and stir until deep golden brown, 10 to 15 minutes. Stir in turmeric for 1 to 2 minutes. Add chuck cubes; cook until coated in turmeric and browned on all sides, 8 to 10 minutes.
Heat remaining 2 tablespoons oil in a separate pot over medium heat. Add spinach, green onions, parsley, cilantro, chives, and fenugreek leaves; cook and stir until deep dark green in color, 5 to 10 minutes.
Stir spinach mixture into the onion and chuck mixture. Pour in enough water to create a slurry consistency. Season with salt and pepper. Pour in lemon juice. Reduce heat, cover, and simmer stew until greens soften, about 1 hour.
Pierce dried limes with a fork and add to the stew. Continue simmering until chuck is tender, 30 minutes to 1 hour. Stir in red kidney beans. Cook until flavors combine, about 30 minutes. Discard dried limes before serving.
