moroccan ratatouille tagine with lamb

ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 3 tablespoons butter
  • 3 pounds lamb stew meat, cut into 2-inch cubes
  • 1 cup water
  • 3/4 cup The Gracious Gourmet Moroccan Ratatouille
  • pinch of stem saffron
  • salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 cup sliced onion
  • 7 ounces dried apricots cut into quarters
  • hot, cooked rice or couscous
  • 1/4 cup slivered almonds, toasted

instructions

  1. Heat 1 tablespoon oil and 1 tablespoon butter in 6 – 8 quart saucepan over medium-high heat. Add half of lamb; brown well. Remove lamb with slotted spoon; reserve. Add another 1 tablespoon oil and 1 tablespoon butter to saucepan; brown remaining lamb along with onions and sautée onions until soft. Add reserved lamb, water, The Gracious Gourmet Moroccan Ratatouille and saffron; season generously with salt and pepper. Bring to a boil, reduce heat to low, cover, and cook ½ hour.
  2. Continue to cook about an hour, adding the dried apricots halfway, or longer if needed until meat is tender. Remove lid, increase heat to medium, stirring frequently, until sauce is reduced by half. Taste and season with more salt and pepper, if desired.
  3. Stir in remaining 1 tablespoon butter; heat through. Serve over hot cooked rice; sprinkle each serving with toasted almonds. (For best flavor, make a day ahead and refrigerate. Reheat and serve.)
