    mersaydees's Note:

    This is from Lou Seibert Pappas' cookbook, Extra-Special Crockery Pot Recipes, "Time saving meals for the gourmet appetite", I have to add that tagline since this recipe fits and does not disappoint! This is delicious. Cooking the lamb chops in spare liquid on low is as close to braising in a crockpot as I've seen. Pappas says of this recipe, "Fresh cilantro and ginger root are essential to the authenticity of this aromatic North African entree." I served it with a wonderful Silver Palate Moroccan Pilaf.

      Was delicious, I had to use figs instead of prunes because my husband thinks they are poison. Will definitely add to favorites:)

      The lamb was fall of the bone tender (I used lamb forequarter chops - 6 for 3 of us though only 5 where eaten) and well thought I had pitted prunes but didn't so used soft dried apricots and as we are not big fans cilantro/coriander I used parsley but otherwise made to recipe and it was delicious. Thank you mersaydees, made for Aussie/Kiwi Recipe Swap #66 July 2012.
