Description

Aromatic and flavorful, this lamb dish can be prepared in one pot to minimize clean up. The onions, garlic, and meat are browned together before the addition of wine, vinegar, tomatoes and herbs. This mixture is then cooked partially covered for 90 minutes, allowing you plenty of time to get other things done in the meantime. This lamb stew is great for a cool winter weekend. Serve alongside your favorite flatbread or rice with greek yogurt.
