Yield 6 servings (serving size: 3/4 cup beef mixture and about 2 1/2 teaspoons almonds)
Dried plums and honey sweeten this tagine's sauce. Check the sauce during cooking--add water or broth by quarter cups if the sauce is too thick, or uncover the pot and allow sauce to reduce if it seems too thin. Serve with flatbread.
