Instant Pot® Lamb Tagine with Lentils

Rated as 5 out of 5 Stars

"This lovely lamb and lentil stew has a wonderful taste and a little kick. The spices combine to present a warm flavor, and the honey and raisins soften the tangy tomatoes with a bit of sweetness. You can double the spices if you like, but start with listed measurements and adjust per your tastes! Serve with rice."
