  • 1 tsp ground cumin
  • 1 tsp paprika
  • 1 tsp sea salt
  • ½ tsp coarse ground black pepper
  • ½ tsp ground ginger
  • ½ ground cinnamon
  • ½ tsp ground cloves
  • ½ tsp brown sugar
  • 800g beef shin, diced
  • 1 tbsp vegetable oil
  • 1 red onion, chopped
  • 3 cloves garlic, finely chopped
  • 250g cherry tomatoes
  • 1 red chilli, finely chopped
  • 500ml beef stock
  • 2 medium baking potatoes, chopped into medium-sized chunks
  • 1 tin chickpeas, drained
  • 20g coriander, chopped
  • 1 handful of pomegranate seeds, to garnish


Step 1

Switch on your slow cooker (if you don’t have a slower cooker you can use a saucepan with a lid on a hob set to the lowest heat setting for the same cooking time).

Step 2

In a mixing bowl, add the cumin, paprika, sea salt, pepper, ginger, cinnamon, cloves, brown sugar and mix together. Add the beef shin and toss to ensure the meat is evenly coated in the spice mix.

Step 3

Add the oil to a large frying pan and sauté the onions and garlic over a medium heat for 5 mins.

Step 4

Increase the heat to high and then add the beef shin and brown the meat for 5 mins and then add the beef and onions into the slow cooker.

Step 5

Pour in the tomatoes, chopped chilli and beef stock, mix well, cover and leave to slow cook for 6 hrs.

Step 6

After 6 hrs of cooking, add the potato, chickpeas and ¾ of the chopped coriander, stir, return the lid to the slow cooker and cook for a further 2 hrs or until the potatoes are tender.

Step 7

Serve with the remaining coriander and pomegranate seeds, and enjoy.
