Lorrie, this is well worth 5 stars. It's reminiscent of a tagine so I served it on couscous cooked with beef broth. The cinnamon and orange are subtle yet lend something special and I cant think of anything that I'd change. The flavor is rich and deep and the very lean round steak was actually tender. I'm glad I have leftover for tomorrow. Made for Photo Tag.
