As always, I saw a recipe that looked reallllllllllllllllllllllllly good.   I stashed it away while I thought about it and then got a bee in my bonnet today and had to make despite the 100 degree heat!  As always I had to make my own modifications for our likes and dislikes, but we loved it.

MOROCCAN BEEF and NOODLES  adapted from Taste of Home

1 1/2 pounds chuck roast, cut into 1 inch cubes
1 leek, sliced thin
6 cloves garlic, minced
1 can fire roasted tomatoes (undrained)
4 tablespoons butter
1/2 cup vegetable broth (I used Better than Bouillon base + water)
flour for dredging
1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
1/2 teaspoon sea salt
1/2 teaspoon white pepper
1 teaspoon cinnamon
2 teaspoons paprika
2 cups wide egg noodles

  • Melt butter in the bottom of a saute pan. 
  • When sizzling, add leeks and garlic.  Saute until fragrant.
  • Toss beef pieces in flour until well coated.
  • Add beef pieces to pan and saute several minutes.
  • Sprinkle all the spices over the beef and stir well.
  • When beef is browned, add broth and tomatoes.  Simmer 15 minutes or so.
  • Add noodles and simmer another 10 minutes or so until noodles are tender.


    This looks wonderful and has my favorite savory combination, tomatoes and cinnamon. Thanks for sharing this with Cookbook Sundays!
