Baghdad Beef Stew

Recipe by  

"One of my most-requested recipes! Serve over egg pastina pasta. It's the same as couscous but much less expensive! If it's too thick for you, add more water when reheating."

  3. Stir honey, vinegar, salt, and pepper into the beef mixture; continue cooking on low for 1 hour more.
  4. Stir figs and almonds into the beef mixture. Remove from heat. Cool for 1 hour before reheating to serve.
