Heavenly scents from this Heaven sent meal. The lamb is succulent and bursting with flavor. I made a mistake - I thought, and you know what thought did, that I had a bag of Prunes at home - not so! I substituted raisins, still excellent. I served it in whole wheat pitas, obviously eaten with knife and fork ,along with some tomato & sweet onion. Thanks Jans for another lamb keeper.
I made this last night for a Shabbat dinner- it was so easy to make and delicious! I especially liked how it only required a few minutes of work, then simmer for an hour while I worked on other things. The only changes I made were to add a tiny bit of cumin cayenne pepper and a quarter of a preserved lemon to balance out the sweetness a little bit. It tastes even better the next day, I will definitely make this again, and will experiment making it with beef since lamb is expensive/seasonally available where I live. Thanks for posting!
Wow this was easy and super-tasty! I cut the prunes in half, but realized halfway through the cooking why you don't have that in the instructions! The insides started to stick to the bottom of the pan - but I saved it before they burned. So, next time, I'll leave the prunes whole until the eating part :) And there will most definitely be a next time!
This one-pot wonder was a breeze to cook and so full of flavour. The fruit really brings out the sweetness in the lamb. I will definitely be cooking this recipe again.It is nice for something different rather than lamb roast! Totally excellent thanks for posting it Jan.
Lovely dish! This was easy to prepare, relatively quick (just took me 1 hr. 15 min.) and very tasty. Try it, you'll like it.
I used a leg of lamb which I debones and chopped up (got just over a 1k of meat but left the fruits the same but added an extra 1/4 cup of beef stock but I felt it needed more spice and overall was a simple stew with fruits but was a quick meal to make if you buy your meat pre-diced. Thank you JustJanS, made for Please Make My Recipe.
I think the flavors are good but I can't get my head wrapped around the texture of the cooked fruits. I think my mind is looking for desert, doesn't work for me. If you're ok with that, I think you'll enjoy this dish.
This is my favorite way to use a leg of lamb! It is so easy and the flavors are delicious! I don't change anything about it and it's not as sweet as I first thought. Awesome recipe!
I didn't think this recipe would have much flavour but because it was so simple, I'd thought I'd give it a go. I am so glad I did cos it was delicious. I added half a can of chick peas to it to pad it out a bit more and it worked beautifully. Served it with cous cous and roasted peppers and mushrooms. Thank you for sharing this recipe.
Another 5 star recipe. I used whole organic lamb rumps and chopped onion, potato and pumpkin and put it in with the lamb. I used a can of tomaotoes. I slow roasted it all at very low heat for 3 hours. It was scrumptious and so easy!!!
