This was a success! My partner loves this. I added 3 tbsp of tomato puree and 1 beef cube with a little bit of hot water as I wanted richer taste.

This was GREAT! I left out the carrots because I wanted to focus on the tomatoes. The spices were absolutely lovely. I think it would have been even more awesome if I wouldn't have forgotten to add the garlic. DOH! Thanks for posting:)

This went over really well in our house, especially with the 7 yo boy. He rated it a 9/10 (nothing ever gets a 10, by definition). The adults thought it was quite tasty. I made it on the stove, browned the meat, added the onions and carrots and cooked for a few minutes, then added the rest and simmer for 1.5-2 hours. Yum yum!
