This is really a delicious dish. My husband is arabic and enjoyed it. I did cut the green beans down to 1 16oz package because it just made too much. I kept all of the other amounts of ingredients though. Very, very tasty.

Yummy, I used less salt and less water to as I like it more of a sauce. I had to cook it longer than the stated time to tenderize the lamb more. Next time I will add the green beans a little later because of this. I served this dish with Lebanese Rice Pilaf using chicken stock and more cinnamon. I will probably make this one again.
