Michelin-starred chef Mark Sargeant has teamed up with Simply beef and lamb to encourage everyone to be more adventurous with lamb this spring.
New research from Simply beef and lamb shows that over 90 per cent of people believe that the British palate is becoming more adventurous and inspired by international flavours, lamb topped the list of meats people wished they had the skills to cook more with (21%). Used widely throughout the Indian sub-continent, the middle east and north Africa, lamb is one of the most versatile meats around and perfectly complements an array of spices for dishes that are full of flavour.
To show you just how easy it is to bring a touch of the exotic to your lamb cooking, Mark has developed a series of easy to follow recipes and online videos, including a guide to the different lamb cuts and how to use them. Mark’fs quick and easy Lamb Tagine recipe is inspired by the flavours of north African countries such as Morocco and Tunisia. This dish combines succulent lamb shoulder with aromatic ginger, turmeric, paprika, saffron, cinnamon and thyme and incorporates the signature north african sweetness of dried apricots and pomegranate seeds. Serve the tagine with fluffy steamed couscous for a delicious family supper.
