1 tablespoon vegetable oil
450 g (1 lb) beef bottom round steak, cut into 2.5 cm (1 in.) cubes
1 onion, finely chopped
4 cloves garlic, minced
1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1/2 teaspoon ground turmeric
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
1/2 cup chopped dried apricots

- In large non-stick saucepan or pot over medium-high heat, heat oil. Working in batches, add beef and brown on all sides, 3 to 4 minutes per batch. Transfer meat to plate as it browns. Add onion to saucepan. Cook until softened, 5 minutes, adding a spoonful of water, if needed, to prevent sticking.
- Add garlic, ginger, cinnamon, nutmeg, turmeric, salt and pepper. Cook 1 minute. Add apricots, raisins, potatoes, reserved beef and broth. Cover and simmer until meat is very tender, 11/2 hours.
- Stir in chickpeas. Heat through. Garnish with scallion and orange zest.
