“In Morocco, tajines, or stews, are made in shallow earthenware cooking pots called tajines. In this version, you use a Crock-Pot to produce a mellow yet intensely flavoured meat-and-vegetable mixture with a tender texture and enticing aroma. So, let it simmer away while you’re at work or play. See below for fun additions. From Chatelaine Magazine. Enjoy!”
