    Moroccan Lamb Tagine

    A "tagine" is a cone-shaped cooking vessel commonly used in North Africa. The unique shape allows the meat (lamb, in this case) to slow cook for a luscious, tender texture. You can buy tagines at most cookware stores, or use a heavy-bottom Dutch oven instead.

    Harissa is like a spicy North African ketchup. Good on sausage or stirred into soups, harissa is also delicious when tossed with olives for a salty and spicy combination. You can make your own harissa or buy in your favorite gourmet food shop.
