When I copy a recipe from DC, I highlight it, copy then paste into a blank Word document.

Yes, copy and paste into Word. The forum doesn't work like a blog that has a feature specifically for printing only the recipe on the page.

Thanks, Steve. I have a bunch of lamb in the freezer (and love chickpeas). I also have all the ingredients (well, not the fresh spinach, but I have Swiss Chard). I might have to make this over the weekend. I have lamb stock that I made a couple of weeks ago in the freezer as well. I assume the recipe calls for chicken stock because lamb stock is not easy to find and not s/thing one would normally make unless one has access to lamb bones.

Right. Chicken stock is what I have on hand most often, but any stock would work. One could even just use water, but it wouldn't be as flavorful.

just kidding.

this looks delicious. i make a french version for my parents as they love lamb stew, but it's getting boring. i'll have to give this one a go the next time i visit them.

steve, have you ever used a tagine for something like this? i'm curious how one would brown things for the stew if using one.

tia.
I have one which has a non-stick cast aluminium (I think) base and a ceramic lid which works well. Bought it from Ikea a couple of years ago. It isn't authentically traditional but I'll bet a lot of Moroccan households use this sort of thing.

Incidentally, here is just one recipe for do-it-yourself ras el hanout.

Mind you, if you have problems finding R-el-H locally , the dried rose petals might be a complete non-starter!

Knorr do a lamb version of those jellied stockpot capsules. I would suggest diluting them in more water than it says on the packaging and watch your salt when you're seasoning.

By the way, if you can find it, Bucky's recipe is even better if you use mutton (as they'd probably do in Morocco

IIRC a South African woman demo'ing in Morocco was chucking the meat in un-browned but Claudia Roden and my bought-in-Egypt cook book both say brown it so you pays your money and you takes your choice.

lamb, recipe, stew

Moroccan Lamb and Chickpea Stew This is a recipe I've been making for some time now. Although it seems like a lot of ingredients, most of them are probably things you already have in your pantry. A word about ras el hanout, which is a North African spice blend. Unfortunately, it's one of the few spice blends that Penzeys doesn't carry. I found a jar at Williams Sonoma that has lasted me a while. I've also seen recipes online and have posted a link below. There's nothing really unusual in it and, again, you probably already have most of the spices on hand. [SIZE="5"][B]Moroccan Lamb and Chickpea Stew[/B][/SIZE] [B]Ingredients:[/B] [LIST] [*]1 lb lamb leg or shoulder, cut into 1" pieces [*]1 tsp ground cumin [*]1 tsp ground coriander seed [*]1 tsp paprika [*]1/2 tsp salt [*]1/2 tsp black pepper [*]2 tbsp olive oil [*]1 large onion, chopped [*]3 cloves garlic, finely chopped [*]1" piece of ginger, finely chopped [*]1/2 cup golden raisins or 6 dried figs, halved [*]1 14.5 oz. can diced tomatoes, packed in juice [*]2-3 cups low sodium chicken broth [*]1 tbsp Ras el Hanout (North African seasoning)* [*]1/2 tsp ground cinnamon [*]2 tsps paprika [*]1 medium sweet potato, cut into 1" pieces (about 1 cup) [*]1 15 oz. can chickpeas, drained [*]6 oz. fresh spinach leaves [/LIST] [B]For serving:[/B] [LIST] [*]Cooked couscous, rice, or your favorite grain (I like barley myself) [*]1/2 cup cilantro, chopped (optional) [*]Harissa sauce (optional) [/LIST] * Ras el Hanout can be found at Williams-Sonoma stores, or you can easily make your own using the recipe found here: [url=http://www.epicurious.com/recipes/food/views/Ras-El-Hanout-101070]Ras El Hanout Recipe | Epicurious.com[/url] [LIST=1] [*]Preheat oven to 325° F. [*]Combine lamb pieces, ground cumin, ground coriander, paprika, salt, and black pepper in a mixing bowl. Toss to evenly coat meat and set aside while preparing the other ingredients. [*]In a Dutch oven or oven-proof pot, heat olive oil over medium high heat. Add the lamb pieces to the pot in a single layer and turn as needed to brown on all sides. You may have to do this in batches if it doesn't all fit in the pot. Transfer the meat to a plate and set aside. [*]Sauté the onion for two minutes in the same pot. Be sure to scrape up the fond and bits of meat left from browning. Add the garlic and ginger. Continue to sauté for another minutes, taking care not to burn the garlic. [*]Add the raisins or figs, tomatoes, and two cups of the chicken broth. Stir in ras el hanout, ground cinnamon, and paprika. [*]Add the lamb and sweet potatoes to the pot. If the liquid doesn't cover the meat and vegetables, add just enough liquid so that it does. Bring the mixture just to a boil, then cover the pot and transfer to the oven. [*]Bake for 1-1/2 hours or until the meat is fork tender. [*]Return the pot to the stove top and add chickpeas and spinach. Cook over low heat until the spinach is wilted. Season to taste with salt and pepper. [*]Serve over couscous or other grain, and top with chopped cilantro and harissa sauce, if desired.
