Moroccan-style brisket

I found this recipe on the Asda website which looked different and full of flavour and there was very little to do apart from pop everything into a casserole dish and allow the oven to do the rest. My kind of dinner especially when we are all busy.


2tsbp olive oil
1 onion, chopped
1tbsp Chosen by you Moroccan Seasoning
2 cloves garlic, crushed
700g Butcherโ€™s Selection Rolled Beef Brisket (approximate weight), diced
200ml beef stock
400g can chopped tomatoes
12 dried apricots, chopped
400g can chickpeas
1 carrot, cut into strips
1 orange, segmented
Coriander and pine nuts, to garnish
Cous cous, to serve


Preheat the oven to 150C/ 130C Fan/Gas 2. Heat the oil in a casserole dish. Cook the onion for 4 mins. Add the seasoning and garlic and cook for 1 min. Increase the heat and brown the beef for 5 mins. Add the stock and tomatoes.
Cook the casserole in the oven, lid on, for 2 hrs 10 mins.
Drain the chickpeas. Add to the dish with the apricots and cook for 20 mins more.
Top with the carrot, orange, coriander and pine nuts, then serve with the cous cous.
