Lamb Tagine
This is fabulous. You have got to try it. It is very simple and slight modifications don't ruin the end result, just like it says. I had 3 lamb shoulder chops that I used, mixed the seasonings and rubbed them into the meat. I let that sit for about 30 minutes, then seared the shoulders in a hot stainless pan and tossed them in the slow cooker. I did saute the onions and carrots a little in the leftover brown bits and seasoning in the pan and added the stock to scoop up all of the flavor and poured it all over the lamb in the slow cooker. It rocked. My picky husband even ate it. I used some of the leftover juices to boil a chunk of chicken breast in and chopped it up fine and mashed it with some sweet potatoes for my 1 yr old. He loved it (it was fabulous). I modified just a couple of things because I did not have cardamom, garlic powder or sun dried tomato paste. I just skipped the cardamom and the garlic powder since fresh garlic is used later and I had sun dried tomatoes in oil on hand so I just chopped a hand full of them up and tossed them in. I HIGHLY recommend this recipe. I think next time I'm going to make 2 servings of the seasonings, add the second one to a plastic bag and keep on hand for quick slow cooker dinner that I can toss together in the morning - but I would let the meat marinate over night; lamb or chicken, both were great with these flavors. Love this recipe. Thank you!

We made these a few nights ago and they were great. I was late so the marinating time was only about 45 minutes, but they still had a lot of flavor. I also baked them in the oven since it was snowing like crazy out. I will definitely make these again with pork or chicken and toss them on the grill when the weather permits. I took the advice of another cook and made the Tzatziki recipe from Dinah and it was wonderful with the pork. These are simple and healthy with lots of flavor. I highly recommend this one, it’s a keeper.

I've always made something similar and I'm sure these are good the way they are, but to add some flare, I stuff mine with soft plain goat cheese with the almond, then wrap them in bacon. They are awesome and everyone always gives me a strange look when they ask what's in them, but everyone loves them. They're a definite favorite!
