A bright and colorful dish that will certainly impress. Lamb is a very flavorful meat and when paired with apricots, prunes, and tomatoes; bring out a combination of tastes that is most definitely Moroccan.
2 Tbs Olive Oil
1 1/2 lb Lamb, cut into 1″ cubes
Salt & Pepper, to taste
1 large Onion
4 cloves Garlic, minced
1/2 tsp Paprika
1/2 c Dried Apricots
1/2 c Prunes
1 (14.5 oz) can Tomatoes, drained
3 c water
1/2 c Cilantro, chopped
2 Tbs Lime Juice
Heat oil in a high sided skillet over high heat. Season the lamb cubes with salt and pepper. Cook/sear lamb for 5 minutes and transfer to a plate, reduce heat to medium and add in the garlic, paprika, apricots, prunes, tomatoes, and water. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat and simmer for 30 minutes. Add the lamb back in and cook until heated through. At this time, cook the couscous according to the directions on the box. Add cilantro and lime juice to the lamb. Serve topped with additional cilantro and a side of couscous.
Dice sweet potatoes (or whites or reds) into 1/4″ cubes. Add them to boiling water and cook for 5 minutes. You want them to still be slightly tough. Train the potatoes very well and set aside. Season your chorizo with garlic and cook in vegetable oil in a high sided skillet until browned. Add potatoes and cook until the potatoes are browned and crispy a little on the outsides. Think of making hash-browns when you are determining the doneness of the potatoes. Dish up and top with chopped fresh cilantro.
