Shepherd's Lamb Stew

READY IN: 1hr 40mins
Recipe by JustJanS

This is my idea of comfort food. The recipe came from my sister, and we eat it often. She told me it was made so the shepherds could smell it cooking, and find their way home after dark.

A really tasty dinner. I used what I had on hand so I changed white wine to red wine and used vegetable stock. Also I couldn't get any tiny potatoes so I used larger ones cut into quarters. I also substited fresh tomatoes for canned. It turned out great and the sauce was so delicious! I served this with steamed sliced zucchini.
