    I made this tonight, and the spices were spot on. I was worried about using so much cumin, but it was just part of the bouquet. Nothing overwhelmed. I did add 3 cloves of minced garlic to suit my personal taste. It was a hit with the family, even the kids liked it.

    I was very impressed. I never experienced a dish with such flavor and texture, The spices were so aromatic it reminded me of a heavy perfume.
    The serving size was smaller because of the number of ingredients. It certainly brought something different to my kitchen.

    Having been to North Africa, I knew what to expect from this recipe and having often found many of J. Oliver’s interpretations of other culture’s cuisine to be underwhelming, I was skeptical about this recipe. Happily my skepticism was misplaced. I’ve made this dish (with some variations several times and I have a few thoughts to share: Lamb makes a good alternative for beef; the provided cooking times are a bit short and you will get better results if you simmer the dish for 5-6 hours (but still only add the squash and prunes for the last 45-60 min. and if you don’t have a suitable tagine or casserole dish, you can brown the meat and assemble everything in a large skillet and then transfer everything to a crockpot for the long simmer. If you use a crockpot, you’ll only need half the stock and you can simulate the effect of a tagine by placing the crockpot lid on slightly akimbo to allow the steam to slowly dissipate.

    This was a DELICIOUS dish. So EASY to make. Deep and rich and not a lot of fat. I cubed up boneless chuck steak. The TV show said to do the first part for 3 hours and the 2nd for another 3. The written recipe breaks it up into 1.5 hr segments. Overall the 6-7 hrs made the beef fall apart and juicy. I served it with a Quinoa pilaf. The flavors were amazing. I made my own Raz al Hanout blend based on Jamie's suggestions. Everyone raved about it after deafening silence while eating it.
