In a large non-metallic dish, mix the lamb with the garlic, orange juice, 2 tablespoons olive oil, the herbs and spices. Cover and leave overnight in the refrigerator, stirring occasionally.

Heat the remaining oil in a flameproof casserole, then add the
onion and cook gently for 5 minutes. Remove and reserve.

Drain the lamb, reserving the marinade. Quickly brown the lamb in the casserole then add the reserved marinade, the apricots and soaking liquid, dates, broth, onion, and seasoning.
