I've never made a stew with such fantastic flavor. Additionally, I felt the dish was very healthful. I know that cinnamon, turmeric, coriander, and cayenne are good for health. I altered the recipe slightly by using coconut oil for browning the beef and vegetables; I feel it is a better choice for cooking since it is more tolerant of heat without breaking down. Also, although I'm not gluten free I try to minimize the amount of gluten I eat, so I served it over brown rice instead of the couscous, and it was very satisfying.
