    Kittencalskitchen's Note:

    If you are not a lover of cinnamon and cloves, then I suggest not to make this recipe. I most always add in my lamb meatballs Kittencal's Greek Lamb and Feta Meatballs (Keftedakia) (if using the meatballs, omit the feta) in place of the lamb shoulder, just bake them slighty in the oven to brown and then add them in the stew. This is a wonderful lamb stew that has a good balance of flavors, you can omit the red wine and use 4 cups beef broth. This stew needs around 3 hours to simmer, so make this when you have a bit of time, or better still the flavors are even more enhanced when made a day ahead. Can be made in a slow cooker also. All ingredients may be adjusted to suit taste. This also can be started on top of the stove and finished cooking in the oven. Serve this with hot cooked noodles.

      This has a very nice taste and the smell is wonderful. I agree that it tastes better after spending a night in the fridge. I left out the celery and used 8 oz crimini mushrooms. Probably could have cooked it a bit more than 3 hours or meat could have been cut in smaller pieces. Thanks for the recipe KITTENCAL!
