Ingredients

  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 2 seasoned lamb leg steaks
  • 1 red onion, sliced
  • A generous pinch of ras el hanout spice mix (we like Bart)

  • 150ml hot chicken stock
  • 60g dates, chopped
  • 200g baby spinach
  • Pared zest of 1 lemon

Method

  1. Heat the oil in a casserole, chop the lamb leg steaks into 3-4cm chunks, then fry until browned all over. Transfer to a plate.
  2. Add the red onion and ras el hanout to the casserole and fry for 3 minutes over a low-medium heat.
  3. Return the lamb to the casserole along with the garlic, chopped tomatoes and chicken stock. Simmer for 10-15 minutes.
