DIFFICULTY EASY
SERVINGS 6

Ingredients

80ml (1/3 cup) olive oil
1 (about 450g) eggplant, cut into 3cm pieces
800g beef chuck steak, cut into 3cm pieces
2 brown onions, coarsely chopped
3 garlic cloves, coarsely chopped
1 tbs ground cumin
2 tsp ground coriander
1 tsp ground allspice
70g (1/4 cup) tomato paste
3 ripe tomatoes, coarsely grated, skin discarded
500ml (2 cups) chicken stock
2 tbs chopped fresh continental parsley
Steamed rice, to serve

Method

Step 1 Heat half of the oil in a large saucepan over medium-high heat. Add half the eggplant and cook for 3 minutes or until lightly browned. Transfer to a plate. Repeat with the remaining eggplant.

Step 2 Add the remaining oil to the pan. Add one-third of the beef and cook for 3 minutes or until browned. Transfer to a plate. Repeat, in 2 more batches, with the remaining beef, reheating the pan between batches.

Step 3 Reduce heat to medium-low. Add the onion to the pan and cook, stirring occasionally, for 8 minutes or until golden. Add the garlic and cook for 2 minutes or until soft. Add the cumin, coriander and allspice, and cook for 1 minute or until aromatic. Add the tomato paste and cook, stirring, for 1 minute or until well combined.

Step 4 Add the beef, tomato and stock to the pan. Season with salt and pepper. Reduce heat to low. Cover and cook, stirring occasionally, for 2 hours. Add the eggplant and cook, uncovered, for a further 30 minutes or until the beef is very tender. Taste and season with salt and pepper. Stir in the parsley. Serve with steamed rice.

Notes

Freezing tip: Prepare to end of step 4 (don’t add parsley). Cool. Place in an airtight container. Label, date and freeze for up to 3 months. Thaw, reheat and add parsley to serve.

Best Restaurants in America If you eat out in the U.S.A. and want the best dining experiences possible, this guide is for you What makes a good restaurant a “best”? Food that’s better than just good, of course. A dining room and a level of service that suit the quality of what’s on the plate. A good wine list (which doesn’t always mean an encyclopedic one), good beers and/or cocktails where appropriate. And then the less easily quantifiable stuff: personality, imagination (or intelligent commitment to a lack of same), consistency. 101 Best Restaurants in America (Gallery) When we were a young website, way back in 2011, we drew up our first 101 ranking ourselves, making a list of the places where we, The Daily Meal’s editors, liked to eat. Taking into consideration our mood, our budget, and where we happened to be when we get hungry, how would we vote, we asked ourselves — not only with our critical faculties but with our mouths and our wallets? Where would we send friends? Where would we want to dine if we had one night in this city or that? By this method, we ended up with a shortlist of 150 places. Then we argued, advocated, and cajoled each other on behalf of restaurants ranging from old-fashioned to avant-garde, ultra-casual to super-fancy. Finally, we invited an illustrious panel of judges (restaurant critics, food and lifestyle writers, and bloggers) from across America to help order restaurants via an anonymous survey and tallied results to assemble a ranked list. Upstairs, the simple Scandinavian-style dining room is kitted out with tables that look like tangled tree trunks, carved by Tom senior. The ingredient-led 12-course tasting menu is constantly changing (you might spot one of the chefs picking a final herb flourish outside minutes before it hits your plate). Starters could include a mouthful of smoked eel and apple, or an exploding dumpling of ox cheek and lovage. A crapaudine beetroot slow-cooked in beef fat is meaty in texture as well as flavour, and local lamb is paired with turnip and mint. Even the bread with sour butter is sensational. Afterwards you’ll be grateful for the walk through the village to a pretty rose-covered house where some of the nine bedrooms have antique oak four-posters and copper bateau baths. Wake to the sound of cows mooing in the next field and head back to the inn for a simple breakfast of sheep’s yogurt with fresh berry compote and house granola or toasted brioche heaped with mushrooms and a duck egg. Unsurprisingly, the most talked about restaurant in Yorkshire is often full, so book it quick. By Tabitha Joyce.
