Recipe by Chef Roni

This stew smells wonderful. It blends the flavor of garlic, cinnamon, cumin and orange peel, and makes an easy, exotic dinner.

Top Review by Tinkerbell

I'm sorry, but this was a recipe that we couldn't eat. We had to throw it out & make tomato soup instead. I think my son described it best as a "meaty cinnamon roll". This is only our third tagine & I'm sure it's personal preference.
