Moroccan Beef Stew

Moroccan Beef Stew

It’s been a long time since I’ve done a recipe post… even though I’m cooking more than ever!!

Last August, my daughter and I opened a recreational cooking school called The Curious Kitchen. A month passed by and we decided to open for lunch (basically we had to pay the rent and the cooking concept had not taken off as quickly as hoped). Then we figured, “we’re open for lunch, might as well open for breakfast, too”…

It’s been about 8 months now, and the cooking concept took off! And so did our breakfast and lunch service! And our catering! And our private parties!

We’re so happy, and blessed, and busy!!

I’ve felt bad neglecting my Saucy Girls Kitchen blog. So, I’m back… and I’m posting one of my favorite things in the world. Moroccan Beef Stew.

Don’t eat beef? Just leave it out. This stew it so flavorful that you don’t need it!!
