A deliciously unique flavor combination. Like Jan S, I made half the recipe, skipped step 7 and saved half the dill to add just before serving. I also reduced the sauce a bit before adding the cream and sour cream. The lamb is accented by a subtle lemon, sour cream , dill flavored sauce - offset by sweet green peas. I served it with wide egg noodles and Blueberry Ice Box Pie (recipe # 31731). I will make this again ! *^-^*
Dancer, this recipe was so good I can't believe it! I halved it, and still ended up with 4 generous serves. I halved the dill, but ended up putting in the other half at the end. I omitted step 7 just leaving the lamb in the pan the whole time. This recipe is easy to assemble and make, and the end result tastes fantastic. We had it over horseradish mash with steamed potatoes.
