2 pounds boneless leg of lamb or beef bottom round roast
1 to 2 teaspoons crushed dried red pepper
3/4 teaspoon ground turmeric
3/4 teaspoon ground ginger
3/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 tablespoons olive oil or cooking oil
2 large onions, chopped
3 cloves garlic, minced
1 14-ounce can beef broth
1 tablespoon cornstarch
2 tablespoons cold water
1 cup pitted dates
1 cup dried apricots
Hot cooked couscous or rice
1/4 cup toasted slivered almonds
Orange peel curls (optional)
1. Trim fat from meat. Cut meat into 1- to 11/2-inch pieces. In a shallow bowl combine crushed red pepper, turmeric, ginger, cinnamon, and salt. Coat meat with seasoning mixture. In a large skillet heat oil over medium-high heat. Brown meat, one-third at a time, in the hot oil. Transfer meat to a 31/2- or 4-quart crockery cooker. Add onions and garlic; stir to combine. Pour beef broth over all.
2. Cover and cook on low-heat setting for 7 to 9 hours or on high-heat setting for 31/2 to 41/2 hours or until meat is tender.
3. Skim off fat from cooking juices. Combine cornstarch and cold water; stir into cooker. Add dates and apricots; stir to combine. If using low-heat setting, turn to high-heat setting. Cover and cook for 30 minutes more on high-heat setting or until mixture is slightly thickened and bubbly. To serve, spoon stew over hot couscous or rice. Top with almonds. Garnish with orange peel curls, if desired.
