Spiced Lamb Tagine Crockpot Recipe

Ingredients needed:

* 2 lb. lamb or beef stew meat, cut into 1 1/2-inch cubes
* 1 teaspoon of ground cumin
* 1/2 teaspoon of ground turmeric
* 3/4 teaspoon of salt

* Fresh cilantro leaves, if desired
* Toasted sliced almonds, if desired

Preparations steps:

* Spray crockpot with cooking spray. Sprinkle lamb with 1/2 teaspoon of the cumin, the turmeric and salt. In a 12-inch skillet, heat oil over medium heat. Add half of the lamb; cook for 6 minutes, stirring occasionally, until browned on all sides. Remove lamb with slotted spoon; place into crockpot. Repeat with the remaining lamb.
