"Very yummy. I substituted Yukon Gold potatoes for Red as I like those better. Also had trouble finding Lam Stew meat so had the butcher take a leg of lamb, de-bone it and cut into stew meat. Was very tender."

MY REVIEW

"Delicious!! And easy to prepare. We found the amount of pepper to be a little overpowering, so I'll just add less when I make it again. I cut the carrots and potatoes into more bite size pieces, cooked it for 1 1/2 hours, and that may have been just slightly too long - they both got a little mushy. Didn't really mind it though because it added to the creaminess once the heavy whipping cream was added. The next time I make it I may cut the pieces a bit bigger to see how it turns out. Overall, a very good recipe!!"

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Feb. 6, 2012

"I have never been a great stew fan and have never found a recipe that I really liked. That's all changed now. This recipe was EXCELLENT. So tasty, and distinct flavors. I cut the lamb and veggies more bite sized than one inch and it cooked a bit faster - about an hour and a half - and the lamb was really tender and the vegetables were not mushy. Really really good."
