This recipe turned out perfect! I only had ground lamb and used yellow carrots and it worked great. I did mine over the stove top instead of a crock pot. Tasty!
Very good stew. I used 3 carrots sticks and 3 celery sticks for the soup with about 1 lb of lamb. The smell and taste of the stew is amazing. Will definitely make again but will try with 1 1/4 lbs or 1 1/2 lbs of lamb. This recipe makes alot of stew so you will need at least 5 to 7 quart slow cooker to make it (I have 7 quart slow cooker). This stew is light on meat if you use 1/2 lb and still kind of light using 1 lb of lamb. If you want meatier stew, start with 1 lb and if you like your stews light on meat, choose 1/2 lb. Either way does not hurt this stew at all.
I made this specifically for DH (I don't eat lamb) and he LOVED it ~ gave it a 5-star rating!! I used Puy lentils (all I had) and they went well with the mix of vegetables and spices in this dish. Will definitely make this again. Made for the ZINGO round of ZWT5, for the Bodacious Brickhouse Babes !
Hearty, tasty and filling! This made a lot of stew. I made this per the recipe but used closer to 1 lb of diced lamb. The flavors come together nicely and this reheats wonderfully. Thanx!
I'm not usually big on lamb dishes (a carry-over from college days & eating in the cafeteria), but this was totally different! Maybe it's the slow cooking or the ingredients or change due to aging (mine!), I don't know, but I do know that this is a very satisfying, nicely enjoyable stew! Thanks for tweaking my interest!
