My interpretation of a Moroccan classic I made this up to satisfy a craving, and to use a bottle of sour cherries I didn't know what to do with You can easily modify this recipe to include another meat, or take out the meat and make it vegetarian, with more vegetables and potatoes

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Cube lamb and brown in olive oil.
  2. Remove and add onion and peppers to the same pot.
  3. Saute until fragrant, then add carrots.
