Lamb, Artichoke and Tomato Stew

READY IN: 3hrs 30mins
Recipe by Lizzie-Babette

Different stew with a very meditteranean/greek flavor. Great served over rice or pilaf, or serve alone, with bread, a salad, and a nice red wine. Adapted from "The Frugal Gourmet".

Top Review by Sackville

This is a truly hearty and flavourful stew. I made some minimal changes, using half the meat and adding two carrots, only because of what I happened to have on hand. But this stew is so versatile, I'm sure it could take any number of variations. We served it with a hearty bread and can't wait for the next bowlful! Just a word of caution, because you're meant to simmer this for such a long time, I would make sure your heat is as low as it will go, or else the dish is likely to dry out.
