    The Wallaces's Note:

    Posted for ZWT6: Middle East. Adapted from Bon Appetit. I can't wait to try this! Ras el hanout can be homemade using spices you probably already have on hand, I use Ras El Hanout - Moroccan Spice Mix. Note: The sauce can be made 2 hours ahead of time. If you do this, let it stand at room temp until ready to make the rest of the recipe. Prep time does not include 30 minutes of soaking dried apricots.

      I fudged this a bit. I was NOT turning on my oven so I used pork chops dredged in ras el hanout & pan fried in my cast iron skillet. I made the sauce adding drained, canned, sliced pears at the end. FANTASTIC recipe!! i was worried it would be too sweet but no, it isn't. Delicious! Served over Orange-Nut Couscous. Made for ZWT6.
