Moroccan Beef (That the kids will eat!)

This recipe is based of one from a Meals In Minutes Cookbook by Australian Women’s Weekly. So needless to say it is a pretty quick one to cook. If you are used to traditional Moroccan food, this recipe would need a bit of revving up. It has a subtle flavour which I find my children prefer and eat readily.

Ingredients:

  • 2 tbsps Olive Oil
  • 1 Onion
  • 2 tsps Ground Cumin
  • 1 Lemon
  • 425 grams Tomatoes Tinned
  • 750 grams Beef Strips
  • 3/4 cup Slivered Almonds
  • 1/2 cup Mint
  • 1 1/2 cups Rice

Instructions:
I like to serve this meal on a bed of rice. The dish itself is quite quick to cook, so I begin cooking the rice first.

  1. Slice onion thinly.
  2. Grate the rind of the lemon.
  3. Toast almonds lightly. (I do this by placing them under the grill for a few minutes.)
  4. Finely shred mint leaves – you need about 3 – 4 teaspoons.
  5. Heat oil in a pan.
  6. Add onion and cook until soft.
  7. Next add the lemon rind and cumin, stirring for a minute or so.
  8. Add tomatoes and bring to the boil.
  9. Reduce heat and simmer for about five minutes or until the mixture thickens.
  10. While this is simmering, cook the beef in a large heated pan until it is browned.
  11. Pour the tomato mixture into this pan.
  12. Serve the beef on a bed of rice and top with mint and almonds.
