Hearty and filling, yet low in fat, this Moroccan stew is the perfect family meal.
- Step 1
Heat 1 teaspoon oil in a large deep non-stick frying pan over medium-high heat. Season beef with salt and pepper. Add half the beef to the pan. Cook for 3 minutes or until browned all over. Transfer to the bowl of a 5.5 litre slow cooker. Repeat with half the remaining oil and remaining beef.

Reduce heat to medium. Heat remaining oil in pan. Add onion and carrot. Cook, stirring often, for 5 minutes or until softened. Add garlic and spice mixture. Cook, stirring, for 1 minute or until fragrant. Add tomatoes and 11⁄2 cups cold water. Season with salt and pepper. Pour over beef. Cover with lid. Cook on low for 4 hours. Add raisins, barley and 1 cup cold water. Cover. Cook for a further 2 hours or until beef is tender.
