Cook's Notes

Lengthy slow cooking breaks down the tough tissue that runs through this front-leg cut; the result is drop-off-the-bone tenderness in every bite.

    We really like this recipe in our house. It's easy to prepare, and the results are fantastic. The recipe is flexible. We usually add a little more tomato sauce and use heaping measurements for the spices. We add cauliflower to get a vegetable in and sop up the sauce with bread, naan, or pita. I make it a lot. It is my go to lamb recipe.

    I thought this recipe was just okay. The tomato overpowered the other flavors so it was like eating lamb and potatos in tomato sauce. It could also use more stew vegetables, like carrots. If you have lamb shanks, you can do a lot better than this recipe.
