      Delicious. The flavors were awesome. The peanut butter blends in perfectly with the spices. I too added less water and used diced tomotoes. I seasoned my meat overnight with thyme, ground cloves, and meat tenderizer. I used the shoulder cut of lamb and cut it into cubes myself.

      Soooo good! Am always looking for new lamb recipes. As with previous reviewer, I used canned diced tomatoes instead of sauce and reduced the water to about 1-1/2C. I do most of my stews soups and crock pot recipes in a pressure cooker. Pressure cooked for about 15 min. Superb flavor. This will go in spring and fall rotations when lamb most available. Thanks Um Safia

      Yum! This is so easy to prepare. The only change I made was use a 16 ounce can of diced tomatoes in place of the sauce and 1 cup of water instead of the 2 cups called for. If I had a can of chick peas they would have gone it! Thanks for our yummy dinner.
