Recipe by Dana-MMH

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
