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.
1 Tbs Olive Oil (or Peanut Oil)
2 oz. Panang Curry Paste
1 Tbs Palm Sugar
1 tsp Lime Juice
12 oz. Beef (California Tri-Tip, Pork Fillet, or Tenderloin)
1 can Coconut Milk
2 Tbs Ground Peanuts (plus more for garnish)
1 tsp Dried Basil
1/2 tsp Fish Sauce (to taste)
Red Pepper Flakes (to taste)
Slice beef incredibly thin and set aside. I use a serrated knife to do this. Heat oil in a high sided large skillet. Add curry paste, palm sugar, and lime juice. Stir and allow to reduce a little. Add beef and sear while mixing with the curry spice mix. Once beef is seared on all sides, add coconut milk, peanuts, and basil. Bring to a boil, then simmer for 20 minutes minimum. The longer it simmers, the better it tastes. While it is simmering, cook your jasmine rice according to the directions on the package. About 15 minutes before you dish up, add the fish sauce to the curry dish. To serve, put rice in a bowl, ladle beef and curry broth over rice. Top with additional peanuts and red pepper flakes.
This is also great as a chicken dish. Just swap beef out and replace with chicken.
