Time Management:

  • Prep Time: 40 Min
  • Cook Time: 40 Min
  • Ready In: 1 Hr 20 Min

Servings: 6


  • 3 pounds stewing beef
  • Olive oil for frying
  • 1 cup orange juice
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 3 teaspoons honey
  • 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • 1 tablespoon curry powder
  • 2 bay leaves
  • Sea salt to taste
  • 1 cup raisins (or other dried fruit)
  • 1 cup chopped apples
  • 1 (14-ounce) can beef broth
  • 1 (5.9-ounce) box precooked couscous

How To Make?

  1. Slice your beef into bite-size strips. Then heat oil in a skillet over medium-high heat. When oil is hot, add your slice beef and sauté until lightly browned, stirring occasionally.
  2. Add orange juice and lemon juice. Then add honey, curry, cinnamon, bay leaves and salt. Add the raisins and heat until gently burbling, about 5 minutes.
  3. Add apples and broth. Bring to a boil and then reduce heat to medium-low. Cover your pan to simmer about 30 minutes. If sauce seems too runny at the end of 30 minutes, remove the lid and simmer uncovered for 5-10 minutes.
  4. In the meantime, prepare the couscous according to package directions.
  5. Serve the couscous with the beef sauce on top.
