This was enjoyable although something about the lamb / pepper / mint combination didn't quite hit it off 100% with me. My partner really enjoyed it so I thought 4/5 was a happy medium. The only thing I changed was using only green bell peppers, although that would have only affected the appearance not the flavor too much.
