      Delicious!... almost exactly the way I make my beef rump roast in the dutch oven (only I leave mine whole instead of cubed. Your way is quicker). I've never used basil for this dish before now, but I think I will from now on. I did add a squirt of catsup to the broth (habit), and used corn starch instead of flour (habit). Served with Black Pepper Biscuits - Cooking Club and a salad. Thanks for posting. (Made for PRMR)

      Excellent! Another great recipe and I just added this to my favorites, Didn't play with it, real like the taste and texture. I've will added this to my recipe book as is. I agree with some of the other reviews. You could modify this recipe to any style. Along with being incredibly easy, it's a great base recipe and easy to modify depending on your tastes. Thank You! Lynette !! Grpa

      This is a winner. My DH who professes to hate lamb took a big bowl and complimented me on a "really good" stew. I'm going to keep my mouth shut and be happy :D. I was very surprised at how dark the lamb color turned out. I knew that I was going to be out for good while today so I just put the whole frozen pkg of frozen lamb bits directly into the pot with seasonings and left it on very low. I just added the veggies when I got home and let them cook to my liking. Can't get a lot easier than that! I didn't even need to add any salt. Thanks Lynette for a great recipe. :D
