It’s not very often I get half a day off on a Wednesday. I’m normally getting home from work at 9pm from a busy day standing on my feet cutting hair. So I took advantage of my time to cook a really yummy dinner for Dean.
He loves lamb and we often have it in a curry. This dish is similar to a curry as it’s in one pot, but the flavours are very different and it’s packed full of fruity flavours. You would almost think there is wine in there but it’s the honey and apricots shining through.
It’s a great dish to do if you have a few jobs to do in the house, while it was simmering away I was spring (or should I say autumn!) cleaning. It smelt so good too as it traveled up the stairs where I was cleaning.
Even though this dish takes 2 hours to cook it is definitely worth the wait. It’s so simple to make and the time spent simmering packs in so much flavour! The lamb was so tender you didn’t even need a knife to cut it – Dean used his spoon. The easy to make cous cous works really well with this dish too and the lime gives it real freshness.
Dean said this was the best savoury dish I had ever cooked for him and is excited that soon I’ll be working on the blog full time so he’ll hopefully have lots of great meals to sample!
