Simply Beef and Lamb are promoting their campaign #LivePeasant encouraging people to cook simple, tasty and nutritious meals for their families.
Tagine is a Moroccan style stew, cooked long and slow and often with things like apricots, dates, figs are added towards the end of the cooking. When we visited Morocco a few years back Mr R said how delicious the tagine we were having for dinner was. He was quite surprised when I pointed out that it had dates and figs in it, both of which he had said he didn't like but the long cooking had transformed it into a great dinner experience.
The second of the #LivePeasant recipe that I have cooked is Lamb Tagine with Pomegranates.
