BEEF

I love a classic tagine, but this cheats version is much easier and just as delicious. Instead of using a traditional clay tagine, I just use a heavy-based pot and cook it low and slow. Using beef, pumpkin, and chickpeas spiced with our Moroccan Ras el Hanout and fragranced with fresh herbs and preserved lemons, this Moroccan delight is so easy to make.

Serve with fluffy couscous, extra fresh herbs, and maybe a squeeze of fresh lemon, and enjoy!
