Khoreshe Gormeh Sabzi - A Persian Green Stew

A delightful Persian beef, lamb or mutton and onion stew.

This is a nice recipe I got from my mother. I do not know where she got it. However, this has been one of my favorite foods for a very long time. That may have something to do with the fact that I have always been a fan of spinach...
