I’ve shared the recipe of the classical Moroccan Lamb Tagine not long ago, and now I’ve decided to share with you the express version of it. Moroccan Lamb Tagine can take quite some time to cook which is why I decided to share this recipe.
Tagine is a cooking pot that is very famous in Morocco. Most of our dishes are cooked in this pot which is why it’s our signature cooking tool here in Morocco. I made this recipe with my Moroccan hearty sauce in order to make it easier, and help you cook a delicious dish all on your own.
You can either make this dish using a Tagine or a pressure cooker. The pressure cooker cooks this dish way faster and makes the meat more tender, so, feel free to choose whatever you need.
