    My family thought that this recipe was just ok. I won't be making it again.

    With a few changes, this is truly outstanding. I cooked the meat less and more gently: only 20 min. at 375, then 40 min at 325. I also used 3 heaping teaspoons of the spice mixture and only 1/2 cup of water, just 2 TB of honey, and about 3/4 cup prunes with a few golden raisins added. Then, I let it simmer without a lid on the stove until it got good and thick, sprinkled it with cilantro and almonds, a little crushed red pepper, and served over a dried tomato couscous with some steamed green beans with lemon juice and McCormic's "Greek Seasoning." Hate to admit it, but my husband and I ate the whole thing tonight for dinner.
