To Make Tagine
To Prepare Glazed Pears
Pre-heat the oven to 140ºC or pre-warm the slow cooker if using.
Toss the beef in the Moroccan seasoning, garlic, salt, saffron if using, and oil. Cover and set aside for 15 minutes.
Brown the meat in a hot, lidded, ovenproof frying pan over a moderate heat, being careful not to burn the spices.
Add the onion or leek, potatoes or parsnips, fennel, currants, chillies and beef stock. Stir and cover.
Bake in the pre-heated oven for 1½-2 hours or until the meat is tender.
Alternatively, cook in the slow cooker for 5-7 hours on low.
Serve with Sugar Glazed Pears, couscous and winter vegetables.
