I have a confession. I haven’t been cooking much lately. It’s true. When I do cook I haven’t been all that inventive, relying on tried and true recipes. I’ve had a lot going on and my younger sister has moved home to have her second baby. So, I’ve been busy being the baby whisperer..(he hasn’t listened yet and is stubbornly staying put!) MarocBaba is starting to get antsy so don’t worry I’ll be back to normal soon.
My recipe today is for Mechoui.
I’ve posted portions of this recipe before but not with good pictures. I want to share this again because lamb is often overlooked on the American table. I can say before visiting Morocco I had never eaten lamb and had no desire to try. The first few times I tried dishes with it I found the meat very fatty and I couldn’t handle the taste of fat in my mouth. This recipe however melts off all of the fat. I love it. Even friends and family who swore they didn’t like lamb like this recipe! If you’re looking for a different kind of holiday main dish this is it. The best part is you can put it in the oven and pretty much forget about it!
