Slow Cooker Awesomeness

Okay, my best efforts recreation of the AMAZING tagine I just made.

Spice mix:
2 tsp ginger
2 tsp coriander
1.5 tsp cinnamon
1.5 tsp pepper
1.5 tsp tumeric
1.25 tsp nutmeg
1 tsp allspice
.5 tsp cloves

Take a non stick pan, add a splash of olive oil and 2 tsp of the spice mix. Heat it up (as if you were doing curry). Throw in 2 sliced (vidalia) onions, and like 6 cloves garlic. I added water on and off to keep them cooking till they were soft. I had intended to use the tiny sliced plums from last year, but they'd gotten freezer-burned/dehydrated down to nothinginess. I threw them in anyways, since it had originally called for prunes. I dumped it into the crock pot. I chopped up the steak meat (about 1.5 pounds), which was frozen, and browned it quickly in the skillet, then dumped it in the crock pot too, along with a cup of water, 1.5 tsp salt, three generous squirts of honey from a squeeze bottle and, because I wasn't sure about the plums, two tiny chestnut crab apples (best apples ever). And then I cooked it for about 4 hours in the crockpot.

When I was done letting it cook, I made couscous with 2 parts water, 1 part broth.

Serve them together. Scarf it up. AWESOMENESS.

And it was AMAZING.
