    The original recipe here called for rutabagas, but I changed it to potatoes and added herbs.

      A hearty and heart warming stew, home style cooking at its best! I used half potatoes and half rutabega. I cooked it in a dutch oven in the oven at 350°F for 1 1/2 hours. By the time I found the lamb I wanted it was too late for the crockpot. Apparently, lamb is not in great demand here, so the regular markets stock only a small supply. I loved the lamb, rutabega and rosemary combination. The gravy was bread dipping delicious and the lamb and vegetables were fork tender. Thanks Mirjam, this will be a staple at our house.

      I combines this recipe with one from Real Simple, so I made the following changes that will make this a 5-Star recipe (rather than the 4 I rated for it without the changes): Instead of water, use 1/2 cup of red wine to deglaze after removing the onions, add one small can of tomato paste, and replace the remaining 1.5 cups of water with beef broth. These changes give it more depth and flavor. I also threw in a couple cloves of garlic for good measure.

      Like others have posted, smells fantastic, but rather bland and somewhat greasy. I just made it a second time using better quality of lamb stew, chunks of potatoes vs. diced, adding one clove garlic (minced) to the onions, one cup water/one cup vegetable broth, and one tablespoon flour/one tablespoon water to thicken. Totally "oh!" for our tastes this time around!
