Moroccan beef stew

Moroccan beef stew

This is Moroccan inspired, but instead of using cumin I use garam masala. I find cumin overpowering and garam masala a perfect blend of flavors. If you don’t like cilantro feel free to leave it out. A quick tip on garnishing: I don’t garnish just to make it pretty, garnishing is a very important part of finishing off a dish flavor wise. If you cook with herbs, they have a very important but different flavor, and when you put those fresh herbs back into the dish at the end, the cooked and fresh flavors meet and create a blend that is essential to rounding out the dish.
