4 teaspoons McCormick® Gourmet Collection Cumin Seed

1 1/2 pounds lean beef stew meat, cut into 1-inch cubes

3 tablespoons flour

1 tablespoon oil

1 can (14 1/2 ounces) beef broth

1 can (6 ounces) frozen apple juice concentrate, undiluted

1 1/2 teaspoons McCormick® Gourmet Collection Thyme Leaves

1/2 teaspoon McCormick® Gourmet Collection Allspice, Ground

1/2 teaspoon McCormick® Gourmet Collection Black Pepper, Coarse Grind

1/2 teaspoon salt

2 medium sweet potatoes, peeled, cut into 1-inch chunks

2 medium firm red cooking apples, peeled, cored and cut into 1 1/2-inch chunks


1. Heat small skillet on medium heat. Add cumin seed; cook and stir about 2 minutes or until fragrant. Immediately pour out of hot pan to avoid over-toasting. Set aside.

2. Coat meat with flour. Heat oil in large saucepan or Dutch oven on medium-high heat. Add meat in batches; cook 5 minutes or until browned. Place meat and remaining ingredients in slow cooker; toss to coat well. Cover.

3. Cook 8 hours on LOW or 4 hours on HIGH. Thicken with additional flour, if desired.

TipsSlow Cooker Tip: For best results, do not remove cover during cooking.

To prepare on top of the stove: Place browned beef, beef broth, apple juice concentrate and seasonings, including toasted cumin seed, in large saucepan. Bring to boil. Reduce heat to low; cover and simmer 1 hour. Stir in sweet potatoes and apples. Simmer, uncovered, 20 to 25 minutes or until potatoes and apples are tender, stirring occasionally.
