    Annacia's Note:

    Medjool dates work well in this braise, which should be served with enough couscous to soak up the delicious juices.

      WOW, this is a wonderful keeper!
      An easy recipe to follow, with a creamy tasty sauce.
      I used frozen cilantro as at this time I don't have fresh in the garden.
      A highly recommended dish!

      Yum! This is a great recipe, and easy to make, too. I used Vietnamese coriander for the cilantro which is quite similar in taste. Thanks for another keeper :)<br/>Made for ZWT 9 Family Picks for The Apron String Travelers
