Croatian Lamb/Beef Stew With Green Peas

READY IN: 1hr 5mins
Recipe by nitko

This stew is much better if using lamb, but it is also nice with beef. The procedure is the same for both meats. Instead of potato you can use flour noodles, but they have to be small.

Very nice indeed... It didn't specify if this was for the stovetop, oven etc so I cheated and shoved it all in the crockpot for 6 hours.. yum! our sauce didn't thicken because of that, but we were too hungry to reduce it seperately so enjoyed it a little thinner. Not a problem, it was very tasty. An excellent all-in-one meal that we will be repeating in the midweek rush, as we love lamb. Please see my Rating System: 4 excellent stars for a recipe that we will enjoy making again and again. Thanks!
