Mealthy Tip

Star anise has a powerful and liquorice-like flavor that ensures an authentic touch in the preparation of certain dishes. The whole stars can be added directly to the MultiPot Pressure Cooker. Just be sure to find the whole star and remove before serving.

I had made a tagine once with lamb and it was one of my favorite discoveries, so I was naturally intrigued by this beef version that seemed similar enough. Plus, I look for any excuse to use my pressure cooker! This really is a top-notch recipe. The pressure cooker makes the beef tender fairly quickly, and the spice mixture, honey, and apricots do amazing work together. It's very flavorvul, though not so much so that the kids wouldn't eat it. Great dish!

We have a tagine pot that we have used a couple times, but this method cooking it in the pressure cooker quick and convenient. I couldn't tell the difference between this and the recipe we would have used in the clay pot. Very well done, true to flavor, and delicious.

I've always wanted to try tagine, but never had the right pot to cook it in. So excited to have found this recipe! I tried making this dish in my pressure cooker and it was fantastic. This stew was very succulent - sweet and savory all in one. Such a wonderful dish, I can't wait to make again.

Used fennel instead of star anise. It’s somewhat hard to find at regular stores. I’m somewhat of a purist so making tagine using a pressure cooker is what I gave this four stars, but still it was a good recipe.

Never been a fan of star anise so I left it out. This dish was really flavorful still. It’s hearty and full of flavor.

Can I use this recipe with chicken instead of beef?

This dish has good flavor with low sodium. I found it classified as a “one pot” meal but it definitely needs more to be complete meal—it’s just meat with a flavorful sauce. You’ll at least need bread or rice to serve with it. I might try adding chickpeas, potatoes, or hearty greens to the pot next time to help round it out as well.

A family favorite, for sure! We’ve made this with beef or lamb and added tomato paste and it turned out delicious every time.

This is definitely going to be a family favorite. The combination of spices made the kitchen smell divine. I normally don’t like anise so I only used half a star in a spice bag, and was surprised to find that it was quite a nice addition. Also I used a six-inch cinnamon stick instead of ground cinnamon. I served it with couscous and a salad.
