    1. 1
      Combine the chickpeas, onion, garlic, raisins, pepper, cinnamon, mace, and turmeric in a pre-soaked 4-quart clay pot.
    2. 2
      Place the meat on the chickpea mixture.
    3. 3
      Arrange the sweet potatoes and whole eggs around the meat.
    4. 4
      Add enough broth or water so the meat and eggs are nearly covered.
    5. 5
      Cover the pot and place in a cold oven.
    6. 6
      Set the oven temperature to 300 degrees F.
    7. 7
      Cook for about 4 hours, until the meat is tender, adding liquid as needed so the eggs are always at least partly submerged.
    8. 8
      To serve, peel and quarter the eggs. Make a bed of chickpeas and yams on each plate and top with slices of beef and pieces of eggs.

      Well! Dh doesn't like ot roast but he did say the flavors & the stuff other than the meat was very good. THE PICKY ONE is following suit & claiming she doesn't like the texture of this cut of meat. I LOVE POT ROAST. And this was no exception - delicious!! The eggs seemed odd but we all agreed they were the best 'hard boiled eggs' we'd ever had, lol. The sweet potatoes were a bit overcooked, imo. It needed a good healthy dose of salt in the end. Thank you! Made for NA*ME Tag.
