Guvec/Tajin (Lamb and Veggie Casserole)

Monday, August 30, 2010

One of my morrocon friend Rachid give me a gift called Tajin . Actually in Morocco it is the traditional way of cooking, they cook meats, chicken,fish etc. in that pots. The traditional tagine pot is formed entirely of a heavy clay, which is sometimes painted or glazed.
in Turkey we call this type of foods "guvec", it is a kinda similar . And the taste is i think similar.

I served it in the tajin which is given by my friend. If you cant find this much attractive plate to serve, you can serve with your regular plates , the taste is same and everybody will love it:)

I cooked rice with this, they are good friends i believe..


750 gr lamb cut in cubes
2 medium onion, sliced
4 garlic cloves, sliced
2 tomatos,sliced
2 potatos
3 green pepper,long and thin cutten
black pepper

First put onions at the floor of the pot, after garlics, and meat, potatos on it, after green peppers, and cover the top with tomatos sliced... add oil,salt and black pepper. I covered the pot with aluminum foil and close the cover. fisrt cook 10 min with high fire, after get it on the low hear and cook 1-1,5 hours..if you cant find guvec or tajin, you can cook it in regular pots.

And also you can cook it in oven ..

Bon appetit..
