Serves: 4
Ingredients
For the Ras el Hanout:
  • ½ teaspoon chile powder
  • ½ teaspoon cumin
  • ½ teaspoon smoked paprika
  • ½ teaspoon turmeric powder
  • ¼ teaspoon cardamom
  • ¼ teaspoon coriander
  • ¼ teaspoon ground ginger
  • ⅛ teaspoon cinnamon
  • ⅛ teaspoon ground black pepper
For the Lamb Tagine:
  • 1½ pounds lamb, cut into bite-sized cubes
  • 3 teaspoons ras el hanout (either from the recipe above or store bought)
  • 1½ teaspoons kosher salt
  • 3 chile peppers, minced (use more or less depending on how much heat you like)
  • 2 shallots, thinly sliced
  • ¼ cup raisins
  • 2 tablespoons pine nuts, plus more for garnish
  • 1 tablespoon agave nectar
  • 1 teaspoon red pepper flakes
  • 1 cup beer, white wine or beef stock
  • rice or bread, for serving
Instructions
  1. In your crock pot, combine all of your tangine ingredients. Stir to combine, then place on low heat for 6-7 hours (or high for 4 hours, but I recommend the longer cooking time for a more buttery tangine). Taste, adjust seasonings as needed, then serve alongside rice or bread with plenty of juices from the pot and garnish with some additional pine nuts.
