2-2 and 1/2 pounds lamb cut into pieces
1 onion, finely chopped
10 ounces (283g) harissa sauce
16 ounces canned tomatoes
5 garlic cloves
3-4 sundried tomatoes packed in oil
1 teaspoon ground cumin
1 teaspoon ground coriander
salt and pepper to taste
1 teaspoon dried crushed oregano
parsley for garnish

Preheat the oven to 475 °F, 250 °C.

Place the lamb in a baking pan.

Place the harissa, garlic cloves, canned tomatoes, and the sundried tomatoes in a blender and puree until smooth.

Pour the sauce over the lamb. Add the seasonings and the chopped onion and mix everything together.

Cover the pan with parchment paper and then with foil.

Bake at 475 °F for 30 minutes and then reduce the temperature to 400 °F. Bake until the lamb is tender. Approximately 1 and 1/2 hours.

Taste and adjust the seasoning if needed. Garnish with chopped fresh parsley and serve.

Do you think the cooking time would be the same for stew beef cut the same size? This whole meal looks incredible!!

Menace To Sobriety says:

Shame to see the western world butcher stuff, harissa is not a sauce. It's always a paste, that was salsa lol. Get yourself a good Tunisian brand or make it yourself if you can find sun dried peppers.

Ayumi Horsfall says:

I used Mutton instead. It took much longer to soften meat. It turned out to be very delicious.
