Recipe: Braised Moroccan Lamb Shanks with Apricot Almond Couscous

Morocco . . . the gateway between Europe and Africa, and a culinary star in her own right. Although Morocco’s culture has been influenced by trade from Europe, the country has still retained her own flavor by using bold, rich spices. Couscous and lamb are staples of Moroccan cuisine, and this recipe adapted from Chef Steve Chiappeti at Viand Restaurant in Chicago incorporates these two essentials into an exotic braised dish.

Recipe: Braised Sauerkraut with Pork

This is our version of Choucroute Garnie, a classic French dish of sauerkraut ("choucroute" is French for sauerkraut) slowly braised with duck fat, onions, and spices in white wine and chicken stock. Smoked pork chops and sausages are nestled into the sauerkraut to cook. The sauerkraut's flavor mellows and absorbs the flavors of the spices, cooking liquid, and pork, and its texture turns meltingly tender. We've tossed in some apples for a little extra sweetness. For a German twist on this dish, try substituting an amber beer for the white wine. No matter how you make it, though, be sure to pass a pot of good mustard at the table.

Any mild, thick, firm fish fillet can be substituted.
