About this recipe: This is a wonderful and easy preparation that is a hearty meal for the whole family. I often serve it over rice or orzo (rice-shaped pasta), with a nice tomato and cucumber salad and good bread. A simple, fresh and delicious taste of the Greek Isles!
Had been watching " Floyd Round The Mediterranean" and it had given me a hunger for lamb, garlic, citrus juices and fresh herbs with a Greek twist. Searching for a suitable recipe found this one, it was ideal. My next door neighbour's runner beans have gone crazy and have invaded my garden, so the chance to do something different with them appealed. I've just eaten the result with plain steamed jasmine rice and a tomato, cucumber and mint salad. It was gorgeous, very very tasty. It was easy to make, which is good, because I'll definitely be using it again. - 18 Sep 2013
Really enjoyed this. Made the mistake of adding a whole lemon juice and zest but didn't seem to be too bad after cooking. Was really tomatoey and the beans were delicious. Can't say I could taste the cinnamon so might try again with a bit more but the parsley on top was really tasty. You can't overdo that! - 13 Sep 2015
Loved this recipe, but I changed it alittle...used 28oz. can of crushed tomatoes only; reduced the stock to 1/2c; and added a 1/4 teaspoon each of allspice and ground cloves put everything in a crock pot and cooked on low for 5 hours. I served it with bulger wheat. - 18 Mar 2009 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
