Lamb Tajine Stew

You will need: 

*1.5 lbs. lamb loin cut up into cubes

Kosher salt

Spirits & Spice Orange Pepper

1 tsp. corn starch

1 Tbsp. Spirits & Spice Don Carlos Extra Virgin Olive Oil

2 carrots, peeled and cut into 1-inch pieces

1 white onion, diced

12 Medjool dates, pitted and cut into halves

½ cup dried figs

½ cup golden raisins

1 cup fruity red wine

¼ cup Spirits & Spice Fig Balsamic

¼ cup of Spirits & Spice Lemon Extra Virgin Olive Oil

1 tsp. Spirits & Spice Love That Lebanese Spice

1 tsp. Kosher Salt

1 tsp. Spirits & Spice Orange Pepper 


Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.  Combine corn starch, a dash of kosher salt and Spirits & Spice Orange Pepper, and then dredge the lamb cubes in the corn starch mix.  In a heavy sauté pan, heat the Don Carlos Extra Virgin Olive Oil over medium heat, add the lamb cubes and brown.  Remove the browned lamb and place in the Tajine with the dates, figs, carrots, onions, and raisins.  Combine the wine, Fig Balsamic, Lemon Extra Virgin Olive Oil, and spices together in a small bowl using a stick blender or a whisk.  Pour over the lamb, vegetables, and fruit.  Cover and bake for 45 minutes.  Serve over Jasmine or Basmati rice.  If you don’t have a Tajine, you can also make this stew in a casserole dish with a tight-fitting cover.
