  1. Place carrots and onion in a 4- to 5-quart slow cooker. Combine tomatoes, coriander, cardamom, ginger, turmeric, salt, ground pepper, and cayenne pepper in a small bowl. Place beef over the vegetables in the slow cooker. Pour the tomato mixture over. Top with Brussels sprouts.
  2. Cover and cook on Low for 8 to 10 hours or on High for 4 to 5 hours. Remove the vegetables and beef from the cooker. Cut the beef into serving size pieces and serve with the vegetables, dividing among six serving plates. If desired, drizzle with some of the cooking juices.
