This recipe was horrible! I am positive the measurement for the brown sugar is incorrect. I thought it called for the sugar to cut the acid of the tomato juice. I should have started with a pinch. No amount of bouillon, salt, or vinegar could cut the syrupy sweetness of the stew. Thank goodness DH was understanding as dinner was ruined! I would give this recipe another try without any sugar!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Place the olive oil into a large hot skillet; add the cubed lamb and lightly brown.
  2. When lamb is about halfway cooked, add the brown sugar and tomato juice.
  3. Turn heat to medium and add the vegetables and garlic.
  4. Turn the heat to low and allow to simmer for about 15 minutes or until vegetables have softened.
  5. At this point stir in the fresh herbs and dry spices.
  6. Emulsify the Bisto in about two ounces of water and stir it into the stew evenly.
