Beef Tagine with Prune and Orange

OK this recipe is not one of those 15 minute quick ones that you can whip up when everyone’s tummy is already rumbling.  It is nice to cook this on a leisurely Sunday lunch perhaps, and enjoy with your family. You can use any beef cut but the recipe uses chuck steak, which is not …
