Tangy Lamb Tagine Recipe

Publisher Photo
I love lamb stew, but wanted to try something a bit different, so I created this recipe that uses Moroccan spices. It's a wonderful way to use lamb, and it's easy to make in the slow cooker. The stew tastes even better served a day or two later, when the flavors have really had a chance to meld.—Bridget M. Klusman, Otsego, Michigan
