MOROCCAN LAMB CHOPS

All Fired Up!
by Margaret Howard

Moroccan seasonings are a savory blend of spices, garlic, orange or lemon juice and often their peel. These flavors are becoming increasingly popular in North American home cooking due to the growth of restaurants specializing in Moroccan cuisine.
Makes 6 servings.

INGREDIENTS

    Marinade
    • 1/2 cup plain yogurt 1
    • 3 tbsp orange juice concentrate
    • 2 cloves garlic, minced
    • 1 tsp each: ground coriander and grated orange peel
    • 1/2 tsp each: salt, ground cumin and cinnamon
    • 1/4 tsp each: ground cloves and ginger

    Lamb
    • 6 lamb steaks or chops (3/4 inch thick)

    Cucumber Tomato Sauce
    • 3/4 cup diced cucumber
    • 1/2 cup chopped tomato
    • 1/3 cup finely chopped onion
    • 1/2 cup plain yogurt
    • Salt and freshly ground pepper


DIRECTIONS
