Reviews for Hungarian Lamb Stew
"I have been trying to find the perfect winter stew for years, and I thin I've found it here. Thanks for the experimenting to perfect this recipe. The meat is tender and it's a really delicious sauce. I added carrot and celery (out of habit) and I think it would work fine with most combinations of vegetables- as long as the capsicums are in there. Going back for seconds..."
