Number of Servings: 8

Ingredients

    2 pounds lean beef, cut into 3/4 inch cubes
    4 carrots, chopped
    2 medium onions, chopped
    3 cloves garlic, chopped
    1 tsp yellow curry powder
    1 tsp garam masala
    1/4 cup tomato puree
    24 ounces low sodium beef broth
    1 14.5-ounce can chickpeas, drained and rinsed
    1/2 cup raisins
    1/2 cup chopped dried apricots
    2 T chopped cilantro, leaves only
    1/4 cup toasted slivered almonds

Tips

Cut the dried apricots with kitchen shears rather than a knife.


Directions

Pat the meat dry with a paper towel.

Place a large saute pan over medium heat. Add the oil to the hot pan, then add the meat. Sear the meat on all sides, then remove the meat and set aside. While the pan is still hot, add the carrots, garlic, and onions. Saute, stirring occasionally for 5 minutes. Add the spices and tomato sauce and stir to combine. These steps can be done the night before.

Add the beef, vegetables and stock to the slow cooker. Cook on low for 6 hours, then stir in the chickpeas and chopped fruit. Cook one more hour.

Sprinkle on the cilantro and almonds before serving.

Serve with whole-wheat couscous, prepared according to package directions. (Nutrition info not included.)

Makes 8 1-cup servings or 12 2/3-cup servings.

    We really enjoyed this. Typical Chef Meg recipe: takes longer to prepare than you expect (lots of chopping!), but tastes great! Garam masala is not something I can buy in my little rural grocery store, so I substituted 1/4 t. each of chili powder, cumin, coriander, and cinnamon. Yummy! - 2/4/12

    WOW! My appartment smells like Heaven! I tasted it and it's delicious! I added some corn starch diluted in water at the very end and pur it on the "Auto" mode to get a thicker sauce. I will definetly eat it with couscous and I'm sure it's will be delicous reheated as lunch. - 3/25/12

    This was amazingly good. If I could give it 7 stars I would. However, bear in mind that the calorie count doesn't factor in sauteeing the beef and onions and carrots, as it instructs. - 4/27/12

    I was surprised at how much I liked this. Used dried cherries, 1/2 C crushed tomatoes, 1 onion, extra of the seasoning, coriander, flour to thicken and a 2 lb bottom round roast for the meat. Calories do not factor in oil for browning which is weird. Otherwise, a great recipe! - 11/12/12

    We really enjoyed this stew. It was such a pleasant surprise. I did not have any tomato puree so I used a can of Rotel with habanero and substituted the garam masala with pumpkin spice . This was so YUMMY! - 2/25/12
