Crock Pot Beef with Prunes and Orange
This crock pot beef recipe is a very tasty one that a friend shared with me. It was a regular recipes that I had to adjust to the crock pot and it worked very well. It will suit a family or for a party as it will feed 6 or 7 people. It has a lot of ingredients and some like the baby carrots and round beans I had to buy in but most of the other ingredients you should have on hand. I suggest you use fresh ingredients as the canned variety will go to mush in the long cooking process.
I cooked this recipe on high but in hindsight I think it would have been better to cook it on low as the longer cooking time will tenderize the meat better. I hope you enjoy it as much as I did.
Beef with Prunes and Orange8 tabs flour 1 kg round steak or gravy beef cut into pieces 4 tabs olive oil 1 large onion, sliced 1/4 cup tomato paste 1 tsp ground turmeric 2 tsp ground cumin 2 cups orange juice 1 cup beef stock 1 bunch baby carrots, peeled and trimmed 1 cup pitted prunes 3 medium spring onions cut into quarters 300 g green round beans Fresh chopped parsley (or use the carrot tops)
In a plastic bag add the flour and add the beef in lots and toss to coat. Heat a frying pan with half the oil and brown the meat in batches and add to the crock pot as they brown. You may need a little bit more oil and if so add to pan and now brown the onion then add the turmeric and cumin then add the tomato paste and cook until aromatic. Add the orange juice, the beef stock and the prunes to the pan and cook for a few minutes. Add this to the crock pot and cover and cook on high for 4 hours (7 hours on low).
Add the carrots, parsley, spring onions and round beans half way through the cooking time and stir in well. You can add more parsley to the finish dish. Serve with potato mash, noodles or rice.
I hope you like this crock pot beef with prunes and orange as much as I did and love the mix of spices and the sweetness of the orange and the prunes.
