Want to try a Moroccan-style tagine without buying an earthenware tagine pot? You’re in luck! A slow cooker does a fine job of braising North African-seasoned chuck roast into a tender beef dinner.

Ingredients

1
boneless beef chuck roast (2 to 2 1/2 lb), trimmed
1
tablespoon salt
1
tablespoon butter
1
can (14.5 oz) Muir Glen™ organic fire roasted diced tomatoes, undrained
2
tablespoons honey
1
tablespoon spicy harissa paste
1
tablespoon ras el hanout (Moroccan seasoning blend)
1/2
teaspoon ground cinnamon
4
small carrots, peeled and cut in 2-inch pieces
1
cup thinly sliced yellow onion
1/4
cup chopped pitted dates
3
cloves garlic, chopped
2
cups uncooked couscous (from 10-oz package)
1/4
cup chopped fresh cilantro leaves
1
cup crumbled feta cheese, if desired

Directions

  • 1 Spray 5-quart slow cooker with cooking spray. Rub beef with salt. In 12-inch skillet, melt butter over medium-high heat. Cook beef in butter 3 to 5 minutes on each side or until browned. Transfer beef to slow cooker.
  • 2 In large bowl, mix tomatoes, honey, harissa, ras el hanout and cinnamon. Stir in carrots, onion, dates and garlic. Pour mixture over beef in slow cooker. Cover; cook on Low heat setting 7 to 9 hours or until beef is tender.
  • 3 Carefully transfer beef to cutting board; let stand about 5 minutes or until cool enough to handle. Shred beef, discarding any pieces of fat and cartilage. Stir into sauce in slow cooker.
  • 4 Meanwhile, make couscous as directed on package (do not add salt or butter). Serve beef mixture over couscous. Top with cilantro and feta cheese.
Tips  

Ras el hanout is a North African seasoning blend that includes warming spices like cinnamon, nutmeg and clove alongside stimulating ginger, pepper and chili. This flavorful seasoning is often called “Moroccan spice blend” and can be found in most grocery stores.

We used regular unseasoned couscous (without butter or salt) to soak up the flavors of this highly seasoned braise.
