Simba Stew

I'm always looking for new flavours and travel has been a great way to discover new spice combinations. 

New isn't always easy when you've got kids, but I can usually get my kids to eat something new or different if I call it something cool, even if it's not the prettiest looking meal.

Simba would probably love this African inspired dish!

Simba Stew

2 lbs Steak, cut in thin strips
5 cloves, Garlic, minced
1 Onion, sliced thin
4 Potatoes, cubed (optional)*
3 Carrots, 1 inch chunks (optional)*
1 & 1/2 tsp Cumin
1/4 tsp Allspice
1/4 tsp Salt
1/4 tsp Pepper
796 ml can Diced Tomatoes (28 oz)
2 Tbsp Greek Yogurt

*I usually make this dish with just the shredded or cubed meat on rice with chapati, but if you add the potatoes & carrots, it becomes a stew, good both ways.

Slow Cooker Instructions: Combine all ingredients except greek yogurt in a slow cooker and cook on low for 7-8 hours or high for 3-4 hours. Stir in greek yogurt before serving. 
Serve with rice or your favourite flatbread. 

Freezer instructions: Combine meat, garlic, onion, spices and tomatoes in a freezer bag and freeze. To use, place in the fridge 24 hours before cooking to defrost. Add contents of bag to slow cooker and follow cooking instructions above.

Another great summer slow cooker option.
