    Made it with lamb. Very tasty as well as healthy.  -  14 Mar 2018  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    Best lamb stew I've had since my grandmother made it - absolutely wonderful - very flavourful. I did use lamb - don't care for mutton. Do try this one, it is exceptional.  -  14 Mar 2018  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
