    Dana-MMH's Note:

    This is a great dish to make in advance, it freezes really well. Be sure to eat this with some good bread to soak up the juices. This is an all time favorite in our family.

      What a wonderful treat this was!! I'd never made anything out of lamb before--this recipe is simple to follow, very well written, and beyond delicious!! The lamb was so tender!! We served this stew over white rice, and of course, had warm rolls to soak up the sauce...Dana, this was outstanding!!! Definitely a keeper--thank you so much for sharing!! TERESA

      Perfect! I love new beef stew recipes! I think browning the meat on the onions was a great idea. I added potatoes instead of green beans only because nobody really likes green beans around here except me. Although everyone loved you Balsamic Geen Beans at Christmas. OK...I'm off the subject a little. This is the first time I ever made beef stew not in a crock pot, and the meat was tender and perfect. This was too easy! Thank you Dana!

      This is a cracking meal!!!!! We had this with mashed potatoes. The sauce is very tasty. I used just over 2lbs lamb with frozen beans plus the addition of a teaspoon of rosemary at the end of cooking. Haven't got any left for freezing though!! Thanks for a great recipe Dana.
