600g PGI Welsh Lamb boneless shoulder or neck fillets, trimmed and cut into large cubes
2 onions, peeled and cut into wedges
1 tbsp ground cumin
1 tbsp ground cinnamon
1 tsp ground ginger
1 tsp ground coriander
½ tsp black pepper
400g can of chickpeas, drained and rinsed
50g dried apricots, chopped
50g stoned dates, chopped
400ml lamb or vegetable stock
1 tbsp honey
150ml orange and mango juice (or similar)
1 lemon, zest and juice
1 orange, zest and juice
Handful of mint, chopped
Pomegranate seeds, to garnish
1 tbsp flaked almonds, to garnish
Heat the oven to 170°C/150°C fan/gas 3. Place the lamb cubes, onion, spices, pepper, chickpeas, apricots, dates, stock, honey, juices and half the zest into a casserole dish. Cover and cook for approximately 1 hr 30 mins, until the meat is tender.
Remove the lid and add the couscous. Return to the oven for about 25 mins until the liquid has been absorbed. You may need to add a little more stock if it’s a bit dry.
Just before serving, stir in the chopped mint and garnish with the pomegranate seeds and flaked almonds.
