READY IN: 2hrs




  • Heat 2 tbsp olive oil in large Dutch oven. Add half of cubed lamb & brown well on all sides. Remove meat from pan, set aside & brown the rest of the lamb the same way. Remove meat from pan & set aside.
  • Heat remaining 2 tbsp of olive oil in the same pan, add chopped onion & cook for approx 5 min till soft. Return meat to pan with any drippings accumulated & combine w/onions.
  • Add whole garlic cloves, bay leaf, paprika & dry sherry. Bring to a slow boil, reduce heat, cover tightly & simmer VERY GENTLY for 1 1/2 hrs till tender.
  • Add fava beans 10 min b4 end of cooking time. Remove garlic cloves + bay leaf, season w/salt & pepper to taste & stir in fresh parsley just b4 serving.
  • NOTES: Lima beans may be subbed for fava beans. I used fava beans & did not peel their wrinkled skin before serving as the pic showed them unpeeled. Just to ck, I peeled a few & found I preferred them peeled for any future efforts. I worried a bit about the apparent shortage of liquid, but that was unfounded as there was plenty of the rich brown sauce.
