Footnotes

  • Cook's Notes:
  • You can use a whole lamb shank in place of cubed meat, if you prefer.
  • I serve this dish over a pasta-rice mixture. Melt 2 teaspoons of butter in a small skillet and cook 1 cup fine egg noodles until toasted and golden brown. Combine the browned noodles in a saucepan with 1 cup long grain white rice and 2 cans of chicken broth. Cover and bring to a boil; reduce heat to low and simmer, covered, for 20 minutes. Let stand, covered, for 5 minutes. Toss with fork and serve.

What a great way to prepare lamb. Quick, easy and delicious. I didn't have any tomato sauce so instead I substituted two 14.5 oz cans of Italian Style Stewed Tomatoes for the Tomato Sauce and Water and it turned out great. I served it with rice pilaf.

We wanted to give this one ten stars! I used 2 cans of tomatoes and a can of beef stock instead of water, which gave it almost a stew consistency. I had mine over brown rice, but hubby and son ladeled it into bowls with the Light Wheat Rolls from this site. Fresh mint (out of the yard, since we had it) was the key. Thanks for sharing this one!

This recipe is very easy to make and very delicious too! The only thing I would suggest is to adjust the amount of green beans to your own liking. Thanks for a new quick meal!
