Ingredients

  • 1 ½ teaspoon salt
  • 2 bay leaves
  • 1½ teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • 1 Tablespoon fresh-ground black pepper
  • ½ teaspoon ground allspice
  • 2 lbs beef chuck, cut into 1-inch cubes
  • 2-3 Tablespoons canola oil
  • 1 medium yellow onion, diced
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 can (15oz) diced tomatoes
  • 1 box (48 oz) sodium-free beef broth
  • 1 cup prunes, pitted and coarsely chopped
  • 2 Tablespoons honey
  • 2 large Gala or Fuji apples, peeled and diced into ¾-inch pieces

Instructions

  1. In a large mixing bowl, mix salt, cinnamon, black pepper, allspice and beef. Coat meat well.
  2. In a medium pot, heat canola oil on high heat. Working in batches, sear beef until it is dark brown. Reserve seared beef on a plate.
  3. Reduce heat to medium and add onion and garlic. (Add 1 Tablespoon oil to reduce temperature, if needed.) Cook until softened, about 4-5 minutes.
  4. Add tomatoes, broth, prunes, honey, bay leaves, and beef. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat to a simmer. Cook covered for 1-1 ½ hours.
  5. When beef is almost tender, add apples and cook for 30-40 more minutes.
  6. Serve with whole wheat rice or couscous.
