Moroccan Pot Roast Recipe

Moroccan Pot Roast

My husband loves his meat and I love my veggies, so we're both happy with this spiced twist on the beefy pot roast. With chickpeas, eggplant, honey and mint, it's like something you'd eat at a Marrakech bazaar. —Catherine Dempsey, Clifton Park, New York

Prep: 25 min. | Cook: 7 hours
Makes 8 servings

Ingredients

2 tablespoons olive oil
3 small onions, chopped
3 tablespoons paprika
1 tablespoon plus 1/2 teaspoon garam masala, divided
1-1/4 teaspoons salt, divided
1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
2 tablespoons tomato paste
1 can (15 ounces) chickpeas or garbanzo beans, rinsed and drained
1 can (14-1/2 ounces) beef broth
1/4 teaspoon pepper
1 boneless beef chuck roast (3 pounds)
4 medium carrots, cut diagonally into 3/4-inch pieces
1 small eggplant, cubed
2 tablespoons honey
2 tablespoons minced fresh mint
Hot cooked couscous or flatbreads, optional

Directions

1. In a large skillet, heat oil over medium heat; saute onions with paprika, 1 tablespoon garam masala, 1/2 teaspoon salt and cayenne until tender, 4-5 minutes. Stir in tomato paste; cook and stir 1 minute.
Stir in chickpeas and broth; transfer to a 5- or 6-qt. slow cooker.

2. Mix pepper and the remaining 1/2 teaspoon garam masala and 3/4 teaspoon salt; rub over roast. Place in slow cooker. Add carrots and eggplant. Cook, covered, until meat and vegetables are tender, 7-9 hours.

3. Remove roast from slow cooker; break into pieces. Remove vegetables with a slotted spoon; skim fat from cooking juices. Stir in honey. Return beef and vegetables to slow cooker and heat through. Sprinkle with mint. If desired, serve with couscous. Freeze option: Freeze cooled beef and vegetable mixture in freezer containers. To use, partially thaw in refrigerator overnight. Microwave, covered, on high in a microwave-safe dish until heated through, stirring gently.
