Serving suggestions

Fragrant and sweet with exotic spices accompany this delicious tender lamb with couscous or warm flatbread and a dollop of natural yoghurt.


This recipe tastes just as good made with beef – either rump or sirloin, or for a slow cook method use Scotch chuck steak or blade of beef, as above and transfer to a preheated oven 150oC / Fan 130oC / Gas Mark 2, cover and cook for 2 hours or until the meat is tender.

Add 2 tbsp toasted pine nuts to either the stew or the couscous and substitute the sultanas for ready to eat dried apricots or prunes.
