Spicy Moroccan Lamb Stew

Save to My Recipes

If you’ve never had Moroccan food, you are in for a spicy, flavorful treat! Moroccan dishes are often spiced with harissa, a sauce or paste that is a blend of spicy North African chilies. You can serve this lamb stew over rice (to help mellow out the spice) or couscous for an even more authentic dish.
