This recipe only requires 10 to 15 minutes of active cooking. But it does need to cook unattended for about 25 to 30 minutes.
- 1/2 cup chopped onions
- 2 cups ground beef
- 2 garlic cloves
- 1 tsp coriander
- 1 bay leaf
- 8 dried chopped dried apricots
- 1 can diced tomatoes, strained
- 1 tbsp tomato paste
- 1/3 dried cranberries
- 1 cup V8 juice
In a large skillet combine beef and onions. Cook until browned.
Use garlic press. Then add garlic, coriander and bay leaf to beef. Cook an additional minute.
Add apricots, tomatoes, tomato paste, cranberries and juice. Cook uncovered on medium low for 25 to 30 minutes. (If you are not using instant rice add one cup rice and two cups water to a small saucepan. Heat to boiling. Cover. Reduce heat to simmer. Simmer 15 to 20 minutes.)
Discard bay leaf. Serve over rice.
