I used the leftovers from my pot roast lamb for this I removed the remaining meat from the bone of the lamb. You could make this with just beef but the remaining juice and fat from the roast lamb tastes nice in the stew, you can use lamb beef or whatever you wish in this. I cooked this in the same enamel pot I used for the lamb. If your not making this with leftovers you may want to add a tablespoon of olive oil to the mix. I used my fruity African spice rub in this please see recipe on zaar
