Apricot Beef Stew

2013-07-02 14.10.21

1 onion, diced
1 clove garlic, diced
1-2 carrots, grated
1 lb ground beef
1/2 tsp cumin
1/2 tsp coriander
1 tsp cinnamon
1 c tomato sauce
1 c dried apricots, diced finely

Saute the onions and garlic. Add the carrot, then the beef. Cook until no pink remains in the beef. Add the spices and tomato sauce, and cook, covered, for 30 minutes to an hour. When you’re 10 minutes from the end, add the apricots.

I was definitely dubious about this when I found it in a cookbook at work that I promise I will find the name of. Apricots and beef? However, it is so delicious! Try putting it on a toasted bun for a homemade Sloppy Joe, or serve with brown rice.
