Moroccan Tajine - for the Crock Pot!

Moroccan Tajine - for the Crock Pot! created by sheepdoc

In Morocco, tajines, or stews, are made in shallow earthenware cooking pots called tajines. In this version, you use a Crock-Pot to produce a mellow yet intensely flavoured meat-and-vegetable mixture with a tender texture and enticing aroma. So, let it simmer away while you’re at work or play. See below for fun additions. From Chatelaine Magazine. Enjoy!

    This made a great dinner for us tonight. We used the beef and loved it. I thought that 1 cup of liquid didn't seem like enough but it worked out perfectly and made a very thick stew. The flavors of ingredients and spices went very well together.

    This made a delicious meal tonight. We are veggie lovers, so I used the squash and some sweet potato in addition to the other ingredients. I opted for chicken vs. beef as well. Served this dish over brown rice and with a side salad.

    This was great - very flavorful. I used sweet potato rather than squash and also added some sliced celery - otherwise made as written. Crockpot on low for 7 hrs. DH was not a fan of the olives, but DS and I loved them. Made too late to count for ZWT 9!
