Lamb and Quince Tagine

Submitted by: PIEGRRL

Introduction

This is a delicious Morrocan dish, which can be served with cous cous or rice. If you use lamb shoulder, the meat may need extra time in the oven to be tender. Leg meat tends to take a little less time. The cooking times below reflect the use of leg meat. This is a delicious Morrocan dish, which can be served with cous cous or rice.

    but add some veggies like carrots and sweet potatoes to stretch the meat so the calories are fewer and the stomach-filling is greater! - 11/8/10

  • Excellent! I served this over a bed of spiced lentils and whole-grain rice. Lamb shanks were on sale, so I substituted those. - 1/16/11
