    ElizabethKnicely's Note:

    When I made this dish I left the kitchen window open. The smell attracted several male neighbors, and when my husband came in, he said that is smelled so good, he hoped it was coming from our house and not from someone else's! Serve with Moroccan Couscous and Cucumber Raita.

    Units: US | Metric


    1. 1
      Place diced lamb in a bowl, toss with 2 tablespoons of the olive oil, and set aside.
    2. 2
      In a large resealable bag, toss together the paprika, turmeric, cumin, cayenne, cinnamon, cloves, cardamom, salt, ginger, saffron, garlic powder, and coriander; mix well.
    3. 3
      Add the lamb to the bag, and toss around to coat well. Refrigerate at least 8 hours, preferably overnight.
    4. 4
      Heat 1 tablespoon of olive oil in a large, heavy bottomed pot over medium-high heat. Add 1/3 of the lamb, and brown well. Remove to a plate, and repeat with remaining lamb.
    5. 5
      Add onions and carrots to the pot and cook for 5 minutes.
    6. 6
      Stir in the fresh garlic and ginger; continue cooking for an additional 5 minutes.
    7. 7
      Return the lamb to the pot and stir in the lemon zest, chicken broth, tomato paste, and honey. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat to low, cover, and simmer for 1 1/2 to 2 hours, stirring occasionally, until the meat is tender.
    8. 8
      If the consistency of the tagine is too thin, you may thicken it with a mixture of cornstarch and water during the last 5 minutes.

      This was awesome - such depth of flavors! I, too, refrigerated the meat with the spices for about 20 hours, then threw everything into the crockpot. Cooked on low 10 hours, then 'keep warm' for about 2 hours. Made for ZWT9.

      This was OUTSTANDING! The best part is, I made it all in the crockpot! I marinated the lamb with all of those delicious spices for 24 hours. The next day, I just threw the meat, onion, and carrots in the slow cooker as well as a "sauce" of 1/2 can chicken broth with the ginger, garlic, tomato paste and honey. I only used 1/2 can of chicken broth as crockpot cooking creates more liquid. The aroma throughout my home was to die for. I cooked the tagine for about 8 hours on low and served it with couscous. The spices really do make this dish. I'm going to mix up some more and try using it as a rub on chicken next time. Thanks so much for posting, I really enjoyed this! :)
