    TasteTester's Note:

    My husband wasn't sure he would like a stew with chickpeas in it, but he pronounced this "very good," so I've made it again several times and he always gives it a thumbs-up.

      Awesome dish. I wanted to use my new electronic pressure cooker so I adjusted a few things to make this in it. I drained some chickpea juice & cut back broth in 1/2. For 4 servings I used 1 1/4 lb beef, 19 oz chickpeas & 1 cup of canned tomatoes (vs fresh). Instead of salt I used lemon pepper & garlic salt at the end. Great combination of flavours, thanks for sharing.

      YUM! I cooked up my own chickpeas, tho. VERY yummy. I also left out the cilantro since I can't stand the stuff. And I whacked up a jar of whole peeled tomatoes instead of dicing fresh ones. Easy & delicious!! I wish I had used eitehr a hotter pepper or an extra jalapeno. I only used 1 & it was lost in the Excellent recipe - thank you! Made for 9/09 Aussie Swap. :)
