What others are saying
Greg Jones says:
We were gifted a tagine by a relative so decided to try this recipe. We found star anise at our local grocery store, it was our first time cooking with this ingredient. I really like the way this dish turned out. It definitely had rich flavor, a little spice, and great texture.
Katie Hason says:
Very authentic-tasting stew! I wasn't able to find star anise so I used fennel seeds instead. I enjoyed this dish and it was really easy to make in the pressure cooker.
