Beef with dried figs

from RereRini on 11/10/2019 12:56 PM

Ingredients:
750 gr. beef cut in cubes
2 tbsps olive oil
1 medium onion thinly sliced
1 cinnamon stick
1 dash pipento powder
1/4 tsp coriander powder
Salt and pepper to taste
1/4 glass brandy
1 tbsp tomato paste
1/2 cup dried figs cut in two
1 1/2 - 2 cups beef broth or water

Preparation:
We heat the olive oil in a big pan and we sautee the meat till it gets a nice brown color from all sides.  We turn the meat chunks with a wooden spatula so they do not get burned.  Then we add the onion and we continue sauteeing for 2-3 more minutes.  We add the tomato paste and we stir.  We add salt, pepper and pimento and we stir again.  We add the brandy, the cinnamon stick and the coriander and we stir again.  After alcohol has evaporated, we add the broth or the water and the figs.  We let boil for at least an hour.  If the meat has not got soft, we add more water and cook a bit further too.
  We serve with white basmati rice.

Itadakimasu!
