This Moroccan lamb stew is not only easy to make but is a great dish to make for yummy leftovers for lunch.
It is a rich-tasting dish but has plenty of flavours and texture throughout. With the dried apricots helping to give it a lovely sweetness.

How to make Moroccan lamb stew
- Sauté the diced lamb in a frying pan with a little bit of oil to seal the meat.
- Add all the ingredients to the slow cook pot (including the lamb once sautéed) and put the slow cooker on low heat for around 7-8 hours. Make sure to stir occasionally and check there is enough liquid in there.
What sides to serve with a stew can be personal and there are so many options! We like to serve with savoy cabbage, brown rice, or for a low carb option broccoli or cauliflower rice.
When taken as leftovers for lunch we often have it on its own without any sides.
