I made this dish in my slow cooker and it was a delight. The flavours were excellent - I added sweet potatoe to the dish to make it a full meal and a small amount of lamb stock.

Will cook again, really easy especially in the slow cooker.

It was OK, but won't be making it with lamb again, maybe I should try the chicken. Too tomatoey. I also added an onion and two cloves garlic. Haven't added it to my binder.

Nice recipe, very simple. The tomatoes were a little overpowering straight after cooking but I froze the left overs and it was better second time around. I think I would have preferred a more complex flavour with other Moroccan spices, but there are probably other recipes on this site with those included! An easy midweek dinner.

I FOLLOWED THE CHICKEN VERSION, CUT INTO GENEROUS STRIPS, USED DATES INSTEAD OF PRUNES AND A TINY PINCH OF CHILLI FLAKES. LOTS OF FRESH CORRIANDER AT THE END AND SERVED WITH RICE. IT IS NOW A FIRM FAMILY FAVORITE!!!

i also cook the lamb in the oven. If the sauce is a little watery you can always add cornflour. we also add sugar to make it a little sweeter

Good on a cold night, especially if you have a cold. We served it with bread to mop up the thick juices and tender-stem broccoli. Little too heavy on the tomato taste to be great.

Fantastically easy. Added chilli flakes as suggested and it gave the dish an extra kick which I really liked but I would only recommend it for those who like hot dishes.

Very easy to make although I felt the tomatoes overpowered everything else

I also fried off a finely chopped onion and a clove of garlic before browning the meat. I used half a teaspoon of ordinary paprika and half of hot paprika as I wasn't sure how hot it would be. I would use all hot paprika next time. Like Deano, I also cooked it in the over (about 2 hours). I served it with couscous to which I added chick peas and parsley. It was delicious.

Really quick and easy to do
I fried off 2 finely chopped onions and 2 garlic cloves crushed
then sealed off the lamb
Finished off with Coriander, Greek Yoghurt and Rice
It was lovely and will be on our menu again

We liked this. I cooked it slowly in the oven. Didn't find it watery at all. Maybe depends on the quality of the tomatoes.

Really tender meat and nice idea!
A little watery but easily thickened and spiced : )

Easy to make without any fuss. It turned out to be a nice meal but I felt the tomatoes overpowered everything else. Only got a hint of the spices, maybe I should use more next time.
