TCM effects: According to the TCM, this dish is very 'earthy', so it has many ingredients from the element earth and thus strengthens the middle - we all need that! It is thermally only slightly warming and therefore pleasant to eat even in the warmer season. (In winter I also add a pinch of cinnamon.) Spinach, raisins and beef tone the blood and give us strength and nourish our zest of life.
