This recipe for Moroccan Beef Tagine is a winner and it's one of the most popular recipes on our 30 Day Fat Loss Challenge Meal Plan which you get inside our Fat Loss Inner Circle.

The apricots add a delicious sweetness to the dish that compliments all the flavours. If you don’t have apricots, then sultanas or raisins would work just as well. If you were a purist then this dish would most likely be made using lamb but as the macros aren’t very good (lamb is a rather fatty cut of meat), we’ve opted for beef instead which keeps the fat content, and calories down.

This dish is a real time saver as it doesn’t take a lot of preparation, you just cook the onions and garlic then throw in all of the other ingredients, including the beef.
