Mediterranean spiced lamb stew with apricots and coriander

Serves 4

· 1kg lamb shoulder, diced 1 tsp ground cinnamon
· 1 tsp ground cumin
· 1 tsp sweet paprika
· 1 tsp cayenne pepper
· 100ml olive oil
· 2 onions, peeled and chopped
· 2 carrots, peeled and chopped
· 4 garlic cloves, crushed
· 1 tsp saffron threads
· 750ml chicken stock (bouillon)
· 600g canned chopped tomatoes
· 120g dried apricots, sliced
· 1 tsp chopped preserved lemon
· Bunch of fresh coriander (cilantro), roughly chopped
· Sea salt and freshly ground black pepper

In a large bowl, mix the lamb with the cinnamon, cumin, sweet paprika and cayenne pepper, cover and transfer to the refrigerator to marinate for at least 4 hours, or overnight is ideal.
Warm the olive oil in a large heavy saucepan over a medium heat, add the marinated lamb and brown on all sides.

Add the onions, carrots and garlic and cook gently for 1–2 minutes, then add the saffron threads, stock (bouillon), tomatoes and apricots.

Bring slowly to the boil, season with salt and pepper, then cover with a lid, reduce the heat to a gentle simmer and cook for 11⁄2 hours.

Add the chopped preserved lemon and coriander (cilantro), check the seasoning and serve immediately.
