  • 750g blade steak

  • 2 teaspoons ground cumin

  • 2 teaspoons sweet paprika

  • 1 teaspoon ground ginger

  • 1 tablespoon cornflour

  • 2 red onions, sliced

  • 2x 400g cans diced tomatoes, drained

  • 2 tablespoons maple syrup

  • Small handful coriander leaves

  1. Heat your slow cooker to Low.

  2. Trim off all the fat from the beef and discard. Cut the beef into large bite sized pieces and put into slow cooker bowl. Add the cumin, paprika, ginger, corn flour and a generous seasoning of salt and pepper. Toss to coat the beef. Cover the beef with the onions, followed by the sweet potato and dates.
