This Gluten Free Moroccan Lamb Pan Fry recipe will serve 4 people.


4 pak choi (or 1 bunch chard).

We couldn’t find chard in our supermarket when we first started making this recipe and substituted pak choi. 

It worked so well we have used pak choi ever since.

 1 tablespoon olive oil

1lb5 oz (600g) lean diced lamb

1 onion, peeled and sliced

2 garlic cloves, peeled and sliced

1 teaspoon each ground turmeric, cumin seeds and ground coriander (adjust to taste during cooking)

14fl oz (400ml) lamb or chicken stock

handful of raisins

handful of toasted pine nuts, to serve


1. Toast the pine nuts in a dry frying pan.

2. Strip the pak choi (or chard) leaves from the stalks.  Cut the stocks into batons and roughly shred the leaves.  Set aside separately.

3. Heat the oil in a frying pan and fry the lamb for 5-6 minutes over a high heat until browned.

4. Add the onion, garlic, pak choi (or chard) stalks and spices and continue to cook for 3-4 minutes until softened.

5. Pour over the stock and scatter in the raisins, then simmer for 4-5 minutes to make a sauce.

6. Stir the pak choi (or chard) leaves through the stock to wilt, season and serve garnished with the pine nuts.

Serving suggestions

Serve with rice and vegetables and some plain yogurt (optional).
