Damn I love meat. It makes me happy when the Thrifty Sifter throws a recipe my way for dinner which includes some lovely stewed beef. This Moroccan beef stew recipe came from Epicurious and it's quite novel to my palate. Golden raisins, dates, and cinnamon are not ingredients I expected to taste with meat, but this stew is a complete winner. Leftovers didn't last long.
Prepping the various ingredients pre-cooking.
Browning the beef. You'll notice we used stew meat instead of a beef tenderloin. Unfortunately Key Food never has beef tenderloin.
Cooking up the onions, carrots, and garlic. Sort of reminds me of mirepoix.
Bringing everything together for a nice simmer.
Served with some Magic Hat #9.
