Mummy,s Moroccan Lamb or beef

Moroccan Lamb or beef

Moroccan Lamb / beef is an easy bung it all in one pot recipe.  If you, re using lamb it has a strong taste for the first time, tasting a little gamey.  I moroccan-lamb find by cutting the fat off, makes more appetising for the smalies.  The wee bit of honey helps with the flavour.   If all else fails and the little ones are not so keen on the lamb, just use beef.  This is a great dish if you fancy a change from a stew.  Transporting the family to Marrakesh or Casablanca with every bite. Moroccan Lamb or beef is a great recipe to bulk cook and freeze in batches.
