1.3kg (2 1/2lb) beef topside, cut into chunks
1tbsp plain flour
15ml (1tbsp) sunflower oil
2 onions, sliced
2 peppers, sliced
2tbsp harissa paste
1 beef stock cube
800g (14oz) chopped tomatoes
400g (13oz) chickpeas, drained
handful dried apricots, halved
250g (8oz) couscous


Fragrant slow cooked beef in a Moroccan spice mix with chickpeas, dried apricot and tomatoes served with fluffy couscous. Use the leftover beef to make a butterbean pie, Moroccan flatbread or a mushroom and pearl barley soup.

Heat the panggangan to gas 4, 180°C, fan 160°C. Dust the beef in the flour and some seasoning. Heat the half oil in an ovenproof casserole dish with a lid and brown the beef in batches removing to a plate once browned. Add the rest of the oil and the onions and cook for about 5 minutes, stirring often, until softened. Add the peppers and harissa paste cook for 1 minute more.

Crumble in the beef stock cube, tip in the tomatoes, half a can of water, chickpeas and apricots. Return the beef, bring up to a simmer and put the lid on top. Cook in the panggangan for 1 1/2-2 hours, until the beef is really tender. Check the meat with two forks, it should pull apart easily. If not return for another 20 minutes and check again.

Make the couscous, put into a bowl with some seasoning, cover with 250ml (8fl oz) of boiling water and cover with cling film, leave to absorb for 5 minutes then fluff up with a fork. Serve with the beef tagine, saving about 150g (5oz) for your leftover recipe.

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.
