I just found this recipe! I can almost taste this combination of slow cooked ingredients - and I am drooling! Too bad you all have to wait until the recipe is posted.

This was decent tasting, but a little runny as the others stated (and I did NOT add the water). Probably won't make it again though, as most crock pot recipes are just as simple.

Molly, did you add the 1 1/3 cup water with the ingredients in the crockpot? I did and it was very soupy. Upon reading the recipe again I relized the water was just for the couscous. The only things that were supposed to go in the crockpot were the broth, beef and veggies. It still tasted alright but I will refrain from reviewing until I make it properly.

A very tasty combination that reminded me a lot of chili (guess it was the cumin). I didn't expect the beef and vegetables to be quite so soupy, but over the couscous it worked out OK.
