Tagine

In deference to Dutch ovens and Crock-Pots there's a old/new slow-cooker making waves in the kitchen, with everything you'd want from take-your-time technique, a simple one-pot deliciousness in a conical vessel that looks as at home on a sleek display shelf as inside the oven.

North African stews, made in a slow cooker called tagine, a conical clay pot, often consist of lamb, tender chicken, fish and vegetables in rich sauces and spices have been made in Morocco for centuries.

Cooking food in a tagine helps it cook evenly for a long period — up to several hours — without drying out. The conical lid allows steam to rise and slowly fall as the food inside bakes, a succulent way of cooking meat or vegetables.

Though tagine pots are eye-catching, you don't need one to prepare a tagine stew. In fact, tagine stews can be made in any hard-bottomed casserole dish or pot with a lid. If you follow the traditional steps in a recipe (don’t put everything in at once) you'll get very good results.

Traditional Moroccan stews often have a sweet or spicy kick, evident in chicken with preserved lemon and olives, or lamb with dried fruit. Garlic, cumin, honey, preserved lemon and aged butter are common ingredients, and give tagines the key flavors of "fiery, sweet and salty."

Fish can also star in the stews for instance baking a tagine of fish with chermoula sauce, which is a marinade of garlic, cumin, chili, lemon, olive oil and cilantro or parsley. It combines all the flavors of Moroccan cuisine with all the basic ingredients of spices, plus it has fresh tomatoes. To deepen the flavor in your tagine, use fresh Herbie’s spice mixes.
