Excellent, really great flavor and fairly easy to make. I browned the lamb first, and next time I may add a little thickner at the end, but overall it's going to be a regular dish for me.

Scoured the web for a lamb stew with green peppers. This is delicious. Exactly what I was looking for. Just like my aunt used to make! It was easy and quick and worth it! Making it fir the second time right now!

This is great. Easy to make and tasty. I started with close to 2 lbs. of raw bone-in lamb and by the time I cut most of the fat off and bone, turned out to be 8 oz. worth of meat. I loved how quick this was. This is something I would make again.
