Ingredients

  • 1 lb lean ground beef
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • 1 onion chopped
  • 2 garlic cloves minced
  • 2 carrots julienned
  • 1/2 red pepper thinly sliced
  • 2 tablespoons water
  • 1 tablespoon paprika
  • 1 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt

  • 3/4 cups sliced green olives
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh coriander

Method

In large skillet, saute beef over medium-high heat, breaking up with spoon, until no longer pink, about 5 minutes. Using slotted spoon, transfer to plate. Drain fat from skillet.

Add oil to pan; fry onion and garlic over medium heat until fragrant, about 1 minute. Add carrots, red pepper, water, paprika, ginger, cumin, cinnamon, salt and hot pepper flakes; fry, stirring often, until tender-crisp, about 3 minutes.

Return beef and any juices to skillet. Add tomatoes and tomato paste; bring to boil. Reduce heat and simmer until vegetables are tender, about 10 minutes. Stir in olives and coriander; heat through, about 1 minute. Serve over couscous.
