“This is a wonderful and easy stovetop preparation that is a hearty meal for the whole family. I often serve it over rice or orzo, with a nice tomato and cucumber salad and good bread. A simple, fresh, and delicious taste of the Greek Isles!” - by nickysmama

- Heat the olive oil in a large, heavy bottomed pot over medium-high heat. Season the lamb with salt and pepper, add to the pot, and cook until deeply browned, about 5 minutes on each side. Stir in the onions and garlic, and cook until lightly browned, about 2 minutes.
- Pour the wine into the pot, and bring to a boil while scraping the browned bits of food off of the bottom of the pan with a wooden spoon. Stir in the tomatoes, tomato sauce, lamb stock, lemon zest and juice, oregano, cinnamon, and bay leaf. Bring back to a boil over high heat, then reduce the heat to medium-low, cover, and simmer until the lamb is very tender, about 1 1/2 hours. Stir in the green beans and cook until they are tender, about 20 additional minutes.
- Remove the bay leaf and any bones from the stew. Garnish stew with chopped fresh parsley.

"The flavour of this was very good, although I may use more lemon next time to get the zing I expect from Greek lamb dishes. Instead of chopped fresh tomatoes and tomoato sauce I just used to cans of ..." See morechopped tomatoes and it worked fine. The sauce seemed to be a lot of very thin liquid, which I will thicken next time I make this as it just ran straight through the rice I served it with."
