  • Spiced beef can be frozen. 
  • Looking for a bit of heat? Add a good pinch dried red chilli flakes with the other dry spices. 
  • Spiced beef is delicious the next day after the flavours have developed further.
  • Serve with roughly chopped coriander if available, or flat leaf parsley.
  • Spiced beef is also delicious served with rice. 
  • Look for beef with a marbling of fat and connective tissue as this adds flavour and tenderness to the beef.
