"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."
Hmm. None of these ingredients are on sale today.

cubed beef stew meat
1 (17 ounce) can
figs, drained (reserve juice) and chopped
1 3/4 cups
water, or as needed
green onions, chopped
red wine vinegar
ground black pepper
I made 3 or 4 changes. I subbed ground beef for stew beef as that was what I had on hand, olive oil instead of vegetable out of habit, didn't have canned figs so I used fresh/dried, also didn't have red wine vinegar so I used apple cider vinegar. Overall, my family & I really enjoyed it. It was a little too sweet for my personal taste but that can be fixed pretty easily. I fully intend to make this again as it is well worth the time put in.
This was different! It was coming out watery so I added beef bouillon. Not a fan of the fig in this-it became chewy and sticky. Also would have liked more veggies.
Made this today and hubby loved it. I don't think I'd change a thing. Thanks for the unique recipe!
