Slow Cooker Tagine

This is one of those horrible slow cooker meals that make the house smell so wonderful before you leave for work in the morning that you spend the entire day thinking about food.
Usually if I am using the slow cooker it means that Dave is on night shifts and sleeping all day. I have always wondered if he dreams about food when the house smells like dinner all day long.
I know I would.
Serves four

2 teaspoons olive oil
2 pounds lamb or beef, cut into one inch cubes
1 large onions, chopped
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 cup dried apricots, quartered
1/2 cup raisins or dried currants
2 carrots, chopped
2 cups beef broth
1 15 ounce can diced tomatoes
2 tablespoons tomato paste
2 teaspoons cumin
2 teaspoons paprika
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon coriander
1/2 teaspoon ground ginger


Heat a pan over medium-high and add the oil. Season the meat with salt and pepper. Brown on all sides. Transfer to slow cooker.

Add the broth to the pan, scraping off the drippings. Transfer to the slow cooker.

Add the remaining ingredients to the slow cooker.

Cook on low heat for 8 to 10 hours.

Serve with couscous.
