"Do we really want to travel in hermetically sealed popemobiles through the rural provinces of France, Mexico and the Far East, eating only in Hard Rock Cafes and McDonalds? Or do we want to eat without fear, tearing into the local stew, the humble taqueria's mystery meat, the sincerely offered gift of a lightly grilled fish head? I know what I want. I want it all. I want to try everything once." -Anthony Bourdain, Kitchen Confidential: Adventures in the Culinary Underbelly
I love simple recipes. A quick stew like this takes about 5 minutes to prep: that's it. Best of all, it cooks in the oven and there's almost nothing to clean up.
The great thing about these Moroccan spices is that they are exotic and warming but the stew really works year 'round. You can make this during the summer and not heat up the house too much and the flavors are perfect for a hot day. The dish is not too spicy with only 1/2 teaspoon red pepper flakes and you can spice it up from mild to medium to hot by adding an extra half or whole teaspoon of flakes.
