    Bergy's Note:

    Persian lamb stew sends wonderful flavors your way - not spicy - just a nice blend of flavors. A meal in one pot. Serve with a salad on the side and crusty rolls to scoop up the last of the sauce. I was very pressed for time today to make this recipe so I just put everything in the crock pot with out browning anything and it turned out heavenly - 1/2 hour on high then 4 hours on low. I used 4 shoulder steaks bone in. I did cut off any fat. Also I threw in a carrot. I love this recipe.

      This was so tasty, not a meaty flavour but a wonderful blend of spices and vegetables. I used all of the ingredients with the exception of the bay leaves, and as I don't have a crockpot I put it in the oven on a med/high temp for about 1 1/2 hours. This will be a regular. Thanks for posting.

      This is an INCREDIBLE lamb stew with a great mix of ingredients from the Persian tradition! The ingredient combinations are just right, and SO flavorful. *It should be noted, however, that in step #5 and #9, there is a misprint. The author of the recipe means for you to pour half the tomato/onion MIXTURE over the lamb in step #5, and the rest of the mixture in step #9 (not just the tomatoes, as it states.) But I whole-heartedly disagree with one of the reviewers...This is NOT "smelly", in fact it's wonderfully fragrant. And if this recipe seems a little too "vegetable-heavy", simply try adding an extra 1/2 lb of lamb. This is what we did, and it was a PERFECT balance! Enjoy! We sure did!!

      Very easily made and got the stamp of approval from our son-in-law. I think the key is to use very lean lamb. We'd make it again!
