Really delicious, richly-flavoured stew. The warm spices just lend themselves to making one of the best gravies ever. Served over buttered orzo.

This was really good. The recipe makes a pretty thick stew. I needed a bit more volume, so added 4 more cups of beef broth and 1/4 cup cornstarch dissolved in water (to keep it thick). Flavor was amazing.

Sensational stew. You should smell my kitchen -- heavenly. I halved the recipe, but was a bit heavy-handed with the artichoke hearts. I have a 2-kilo jar of them, and guessed generously. I don't own a slow cooker, so put this in the oven for about four hours at just under 100-degrees Centigrade.
