I thought this tasted great. There is a little bit of a learning curve with cooking instructions as when I microwaved the lamb sauce it came out overcooked. I too think there should have been more lamb for a serving of two. The herbs that came in the box were not all fresh: some were dry, some were limp, some just right. So, that was weird, and I had made the day after receiving it. I would order again if it had more lamb and fresher herbs.
Not a huge fan. The flavor is odd for me and there are to many textures to think about.
The sauce is rich with flavor, but this should be called Apricot Tagine instead of Lamb Tagine because one portion only had two small cubes of lamb and was loaded with halved, reconstituted (formerly dried) apricots that overwhelmed the dish. I would have preferred small diced apricots for pops of flavor, but the big, fibrous chunks were too much. The lamb was tender and the couscous and yogurt rounded out the meal nicely. I would not order again unless the recipe is revised.
I visit a middle eastern restaurant whenever I’m in the area and love it - this is just as tasty! It was more spicy (hot) than I expected, but it didn’t change my happiness with this dish. I’ll definitely order this regularly.
I did not order this one!
