Serves 6

Prep Time 35 min

Total Time 210 min.


  • 1 pound boneless blade steak, trimmed, cut into 1” cubes
  • 3/4 cup dry red wine
  • 3 teaspoons extra-virgin olive oil, divided
  • Salt & freshly ground pepper, to taste
  • 1 small onion, chopped
  • 3 tablespoon curry powder
  • 2 cups reduced-sodium beef or chicken broth
  • 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 2/3 cup chopped dried or fresh pitted dates
  • 4 ripe mangoes, peeled, pitted and cut into 1-inch cubes, juice reserved
  • 1/2 cup raisins

Cooking Directions

Step 1

Place beef in a bowl, add red wine, 1 1/2 teaspoons oil, salt and pepper and toss lightly. Cover and marinate for 3 to 4 hours in the refrigerator.

Step 2

Heat remaining 1 1/2 teaspoons oil in a 4-quart saucepan over medium heat. Add onion and curry powder and sauté until onion has softened, about 5 minutes. Drain the beef, reserving marinade. Add the beef to the pan and sauté until browned, 3 to 5 minutes.

Step 3

Stir in broth, the leftover marinade and Worcestershire sauce. Reduce heat to low and simmer for 5 minutes. Add dates and cook for 5 minutes. Add mangoes, juice and raisins and cook for 15 minutes.
