What is a TagineżCounter Intelligence

A tagine is a North African cooking vessel used for cooking an aromatic stew of the same nam. The conical design creates a high moisture, high temperature cooking environment: steam rises up into the cone, condenses, then trickles back down into the bottom.

In a large bowl, combine ginger, cumin, salt, turmeric, and cinnamon. Add lamb to bowl; toss to coat in spices.
In a 3-1/2- to 4-quart slow cooker, place lamb, sweet potato, tomato, carrots, onion, dates, olives, tapioca, lemon peel, lemon juice, honey, and garlic. Pour broth over all.
Cover; cook on low-heat setting for 8 to 10 hours or on high-heat setting for 4 to 5 hours.
Serve over couscous and top with almonds.


  • For Easy Cleanup:

    Line your slow cooker with a disposable slow cooker liner. Add ingredients as directed in recipe. Once your dish is finished cooking, spoon the food out of your slow cooker and simply dispose of the liner. Do not lift or transport the disposable liner with food inside.
