slow-cooker caribbean fall beef stew

This exotic stew is full of the taste and color of fall. Adapted from the Food Network magazine
makes 4-6 servings


1 ½-2 lb cubed beef
2 tsp. curry powder
½ tsp. allspice
salt and pepper to taste
2 large yams, peeled and cut into 2-inch pieces
1 large red bell pepper, cut into bite-size pieces
1 can coconut milk
2 Tbsp. grated fresh ginger
1 lime juiced, plus wedges for serving if desired
for serving:
scallions or cilantro, chopped
cooked quinoa


1. Season beef with mix of curry, allspice, salt and pepper. I like to brown my meat on all sides in a pan of hot oil. I think this locks in the juiciness of the meat but it isn't totally necessary. Place in slow cooker.
2. Add pepper and yam on top.
3. Whisk coconut milk and ginger. I added a some more curry, allspice, salt and pepper as well. Pour on top of meat.
4. Cook on low for 4-7 hours. Yes, I know that is a huge range of time but you know your own slow cooker better than me. Mine is a semi-slow cooker and I know anything I put in there will be cooked to a dry unpleasantness if I follow the time for most slow cooker recipes. 4 hours was perfect for mine :)
5. Stir in lime juice and top with scallions or cilantro. Serve over quinoa for a satisfying meal.
