African lamb recipes using a tagine is best served with warm couscous, pita or flatbread. 


Our lamb recipe tagine is primarily used to slow cook stews and vegetable dishes. Because the domed or cone-shaped lid of the tagine traps steam and returns the condensed liquid to the pot, a minimal amount of water is needed when cooking. Use a stew pot instead of a tagine for this lamb recipe just add an extra 1 cup of broth to the recipe.
