BBC - Food - Recipes : Harissa spiced lamb with cannellini beans: (by Mary Berry)
4 tbsp olive oil
2 tbsp ground cumin
2 tbsp ground coriander
1kg/2lb 4oz lamb neck fillet, trimmed and cut into small pieces
2.5cm/1in piece fresh root ginger, finely grated
2 onions, thinly sliced
250ml/9fl oz dry white wine
400g tin chopped tomatoes
2 tbsp tomato purée
2 tbsp clear honey
1½ tbsp harissa paste (preferably rose)
½ lemon, juice and finely grated rind only
400g tin cannellini beans, drained and rinsed
salt and freshly ground black pepper
Preheat the oven to 160C/140C Fan/Gas 3.
Heat 2 tablespoons of the oil in a deep, ovenproof frying pan or flameproof casserole dish.
Sprinkle the cumin and coriander over the lamb pieces and fry in two batches in the hot oil for about 5 minutes or until browned.
Remove with a slotted spoon and set aside.
Pour the remaining oil into the pan, add the ginger and onions and fry over a high heat for 10 minutes until soft.
Pour in the wine and boil for 2–3 minutes, stirring and scraping the bottom of the pan to incorporate all the caramelised meaty bits.
Add all the remaining ingredients, except the beans, and stir well, then return the lamb to the pan, season with salt and pepper and bring to the boil.
Cover with a lid and transfer to the oven to cook for 1 hour 15 minutes.
Stir in the beans and return to the oven to cook for 15 minutes, or until the lamb is tender.
- There’s no need to peel the ginger root if you just trim the ends and then grate it.
The skin usually gets left behind, attached to the root, and the pulpy ginger appears on the other side of the grater.
- If you need to spin the lamb out for extra-hungry people, add another can of beans to make the casserole go a little further.
