Talk about fast and flavorful; this recipe pairs beef (we're talking sirloin here), with it's old pal carrots but gives them a new spin with cinnamon, cayenne, and fresh mint. Plus it takes just 35 minutes to make.

  • Add remaining 1 tablespoon oil to pan and cook vegetables, stirring occasionally, until onion is golden in places, about 5 minutes. Stir in tomato paste and cook 1 minute. Add spices and cook until fragrant, 15 seconds. Add broth; bring to a simmer. Cover, reduce heat, and simmer until carrots are crisp-tender, about 10 minutes. Return sirloin and any accumulated juices to pan; cook until warmed through, about 1 minute. Remove from heat. Season with salt and pepper; sprinkle with mint. Serve over couscous.

I have been making this stew for several years now and it is one of our family favorites that all 5 of us love. Easy to make, great flavors and we eat it over penne pasta, potato or rice. It is a winter go-to recipe for us.

I cooked this today, easy prep and came together quickly. I prepared the couscous in the manner from the recipe "chicken breasts stuffed with herbed couscous". The recipe makes lots of broth. I will have this again.

Incredibly easy, incredibly good. The flavor and aromas are amazing. We've substituted rice for couscous and, on occasion, London Broil for the beef component. This is a keeper.

This was very delicious and highly satisfying. It hit my comfort food craving. It is a great meal to prepare quickly. Prepping the meat and veggies took the longest amount of time and it was minimal at that. YUM!!
