Beef and Prune Tagine Recipe

INGREDIENTS

  1. 1tablespoonbutter
  2. 1tablespoonolive oil
  3. 1teaspoonground cumin
  4. 1teaspoonblack pepper
  5. 1teaspoonground cinnamon
  6. 1/2onion, finely chopped
  7. 4tablespoonsfresh coriander, chopped
  8. 250gstewing beef, trimmed and cut into bite-sized pieces
  9. 1/2teaspoonsaffron, soaked in
  10. 2tablespoonsboiling water
  11. 200g stonedprunes
  12. 1tablespoonclear honey
  13. Topping

  14. 1tablespoonsesame seeds, toasted
  15. 10almonds, toasted

DIRECTIONS

  1. Put the butter and oil in a large saucepan.
  2. When the butter is melted, put in the spices, coriander and onion.
  3. Let fry for 30 seconds, then add the beef and stir well to coat.
  4. Cover the meat with a cup of water and the saffron mixture.
  5. The water should be just over halfway up the meat.
  6. Bring to the boil and then lower to a gentle simmer.
  7. Add half the prunes and cook for 1-1/2 hours until the meat becomes tender and juicy.
  8. Keep the pot mostly covered during this time — the only time I lift the cover is for a few seconds if the heat builds too much and it starts to boil. You need to keep this dish at a very low simmer.
  9. Add remaining prunes along with the honey, salt and pepper.
  10. Simmer for another 30 minutes or until the meat is tender and the liquid has thickened and reduced.
  11. Serve with the sesame seeds and almonds on top.
