I thought this recipe was definitely missing something.. I've never made a moroccan stew and did not like the fruity flavor from the lime & orange rind with the meat. I think it was a waste on a wonderful cut of lamb. Next time I'll look for a more authentic recipe that focuses more on middle eastern spices.
My family just LOVES this recipe. There are a lot of spices and flavors at work here, and it all adds up to a very delicious stew. We serve it with Naan. I don't take the time to make stewed quinces; I just use some bottled mango chutney instead to make the sambal. We like it with lots of mint. This is a regular family favorite at our house.
