I love Moroccan spiced food, the deep dark, sticky sweet and spicy flavours that tend to be used really excite me, they are fantastic no matter what the time of year and can be paired with loads of different meats and vegetables.
As a result I decided to have a crack at making my own slow cooked Moroccan inspired lamb and as with a lot of my favourite dishes I decided to cook it in the slow cooker.
As you will see below the ingredients list is quite long, don’t be put off they are all simple store cupboard ingredients or things that are really easy to get hold of in your local supermarket. It’s basically a one pot dish before it’s transferred to the slow cooker. I did all the prep and initial cooking the night before then left it in the slow cooker (switched off) overnight to marinade.
If you haven’t got a slow cooker then you can roast it in the oven or leave it on the hob on a low heat for a couple of hours.
You might want to adjust the chilli/cayenne if you don’t like it hot, plus if your slow cooker keeps the moisture in then add less water.
Prep time: 15mins
Cooking time: 6-8 hours (although I left it for 12 as was at work)
