MOROCCAN LAMB STEW

MOROCCAN LAMB STEW RECIPE

Lamb brisket and neck are inexpensive because they are cut into small pieces, but they have nothing to envy of any other cut. It's tender and flavorful, and it's perfect for slow cooking over low heat in an iron pot (about 1 hour) or in a slow cooker (about 5 hours at low temperature).

Prep Time 30 minutes
Cook Time 1 hour
Additional Time 5 minutes
Total Time 1 hour 35 minutes

Ingredients

  • 1 kg of lamb
  • 2 medium onions
  • 1 large zucchini
  • 3 garlic cloves
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 cup of meat or vegetable broth, 250 ml
  • 1 tablespoon dried rosemary
  • ½ teaspoon ground ginger
  • ½ teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar
  • Salt to taste
  • Black pepper to taste

Instructions

    1. In a mixing bowl, combine the meat, salt, pepper, and cinnamon. Stir until all of the pieces are evenly seasoned.
    2. Brown the meat in a large pot with 2 tablespoons olive oil over medium heat for about 4 minutes. Turn the pieces over to brown on all sides.
    3. Chop the onion and place it in the pot with the meat. Cook, stirring occasionally, for 5 minutes.
    4. Combine the minced garlic, rosemary, and ginger in a mixing bowl. Cook for a few minutes more.
    5. Then, if using, add the apple cider vinegar, broth, orange juice and zest, and dried fruit.
    6. Zucchini, diced, should be added to the stew.
    7. Reduce the heat to low, cover the pot, and cook for 1 hour, or until the lamb is tender. If using a slow cooker, cook the stew for 5 hours on low heat. If you use the Instant Pot, it will take 5 hours in "Slow Cook" mode with the "Normal" setting.
    8. If the broth evaporates too quickly and the stew becomes too dry, add a little more broth or water.
