One pot Moroccan lamb with eggs recipe

 
The Moroccan Food Kitchen, the home of tasty Moroccan food recipe, invites you to try One pot Moroccan lamb with eggs recipe. Enjoy our collection of traditional Moroccan Food Recipes and learn how to make One pot Moroccan lamb with eggs.

Ingredients

1 onion
1x500g pack minced lamb
2tbsp olive oil
1 garlic clove, minced
1tbsp ginger, grated
1tsp ras el hanout (morocan spice mix)
1x400g tin chopped tomatoes
4 eggs
handful mint leaves, chopped
couscous, to serve

Grate half the onion and add to a bowl with the lamb. Season well and mix together. Use your hands to shape into 12 small balls, each about the size of a golf ball. Finely chop the remaining onion.

Heat the oil in a large, deep frying pan. Add the meatballs and cook for about 3 minutes on each side until golden all over. Then add the chopped onion, garlic and ginger to the pan and cook for a couple more minutes until softened.

Stir in the ras el hanout, then pour over the tomatoes and 200ml (7fl oz) water. Bring to the boil, then simmer for 20 minutes until the meatballs are cooked through.

Make 4 little hollows in the mixture and crack an egg into each one. Cover the pan with a lid or piece of tin foil and leave the eggs to poach for about 5 minutes, until the whites are cooked.

Scatter over the mint and serve with some crusty bread or couscous.

If serving vulnerable groups, elderly people, babies, toddlers, pregnant women and people who are unwell, cook until the whites and yolks are solid.

Serves: 6
Takes: 25 mins to prepare and 1 hr 30 mins to cook
635 calories / serving

Ingredients

1tbsp olive oil
2 large onions, thinly sliced
1tbsp coriander seeds, crushed
1tbsp ground cumin
1kg (2lb) cubed lamb neck or shoulder
thumbnail-sized chunk of root ginger, finely chopped
3 garlic cloves, finely chopped
salt
pepper
1tbsp honey
1 large jar tomato passata
1 bunch fresh coriander leaves, chopped

For the mint couscous
300g (10oz) couscous
400ml (14fl oz) chicken stock
knob butter
1 pomegranate
1 bunch fresh mint, chopped

Preheat the oven to gas 4, 180°C, fan 170°C.

In a large heavy-bottomed casserole dish, heat the oil and lightly brown the onions, ginger and spices for 10 minutes. Add the remaining tagine ingredients, except the chopped coriander leaves, to the casserole, mix well and bring to the boil on the hob. (Don’t brown the lamb before adding to the casserole.)

Once boiling, cover the top with a piece of greaseproof paper and then with the casserole’s lid. Place in the preheated oven and cook for 1½ hours. At the end of this time, lower the oven to gas ¼, 110°C to keep the tagine warm.

Prepare the couscous: put it in a heatproof bowl and add the stock with the knob of butter. Stir well, cover with a sheet of greaseproof paper and set aside for 5 minutes.

Deseed the pomegranate, putting the seeds into a bowl together with any excess juice. Add these and the chopped mint to the couscous. Stir the chopped coriander into the lamb tagine and serve on top of the couscous.

400g lean lamb mince

Ingredients

1.3kg (2 1/2lb) beef topside, cut into chunks
1tbsp plain flour
15ml (1tbsp) sunflower oil
2 onions, sliced
2 peppers, sliced
2tbsp harissa paste

400g (13oz) chickpeas, drained
handful dried apricots, halved

Method

Fragrant slow cooked beef in a Moroccan spice mix with chickpeas, dried apricot and tomatoes served with fluffy couscous. Use the leftover beef to make a butterbean pie, Moroccan flatbread or a mushroom and pearl barley soup.

Heat the oven to gas 4, 180°C, fan 160°C. Dust the beef in the flour and some seasoning. Heat the half oil in an ovenproof casserole dish with a lid and brown the beef in batches removing to a plate once browned. Add the rest of the oil and the onions and cook for about 5 minutes, stirring often, until softened. Add the peppers and harissa paste cook for 1 minute more.

Cook in the oven for 1 1/2-2 hours, until the beef is really tender. Check the meat with two forks, it should pull apart easily. If not return for another 20 minutes and check again.

Make the couscous, put into a bowl with some seasoning, cover with 250ml (8fl oz) of boiling water and cover with cling film, leave to absorb for 5 minutes then fluff up with a fork. Serve with the beef tagine, saving about 150g (5oz) for your leftover recipe.
