Mediterranean Beef, a slow cooker recipe

Welcome to Our Sunday Café, we are pleased you stopped by for a visit. Today we are offering another delicious recipe from our kitchen. We hope you enjoy it as much as we did…

We have made this dish a couple of times. Unfortunately, the photos do not turn out any better from recipe to recipe. Which is often the case with brown colored food. With that said, it is time to share this wonderful recipe for Mediterranean Beef, sans a better photo.

Mediterranean Beef Stew, with prunes and spices, delicious!

This is warmly spiced, yet not overly sweet in any way. If you love prunes dried plums that are cooked until silky smooth, you will enjoy this entree. We served it with our favorite vegetable rice, but plain rice, couscous or quinoa would all be delicious choices.
