    Cook's Tip: For smaller slow cookers, it may be easier to combine ingredients in a separate bowl before adding to slow cooker.
  2. Serve over couscous. Garnish with almonds and parsley, if desired.

  3. This recipe can be made in a 6-quart electric pressure cooker. Place beef and tomatoes in pressure cooker. Close and lock pressure cooker lid. Use beef, stew or high-pressure setting on pressure cooker; program 15 minutes on pressure cooker timer. Use quick-release feature to release pressure; carefully remove lid. Add flour, cumin, cinnamon, salt, red pepper, sweet potatoes and raisins; stir. Close and lock pressure cooker lid for additional 10-minute cook. When complete, carefully remove lid. Serve over couscous and top as desired with almonds and parsley.
