This recipe is absolutely delicious. However instead of cooking in our oven I cooked on high in our crockpot for about 5 hours. Stunning and the sauce well that's so yummy!!!

This dish was very tasty. I didn't have dried dated so I used dried peaches and they were delicious. The fresh herb I used was cilantro which went well with the ginger and cumin.
