  1. Heat olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the garlic, and cook until transparent. Add the cubed lamb, and cook until browned on all sides. Season with cumin, mint, turmeric and rosemary. Cook for another 5 minutes. Add the diced tomatoes, tomato paste and okra. Combine the lemon juice and water, and stir into the skillet. Cover, and simmer over low heat for 45 minutes.
  2. Meanwhile, melt the butter in a saucepan over medium heat. Add the egg noodles, and saute until toasted. Pour in the chicken broth and water, and bring to a boil. Stir in rice, cover and simmer over low heat until the rice is tender, about 15 minutes. Season with salt and pepper and stir in olive oil before serving. Serve the lamb stew over the rice pilaf.

This was an ok stew, but the flavor of the lamb was minimal. Since lamb is so expensive, I won't make it again, or will just use beef or pork. I used Garam Masala spice mixture (Cardamom, Black pepper, Coriander, Nugmeg, Cloves and Cinnamon)to give it some more flavor. Only for okra lovers. Don't make it if you don't like okra. Okra has a viscous texture when cooked and aids in thickening soups and stews.



OMG! My husband cooked this for me several weeks ago and had made it again 2 times since. It is an absolute favorite of mine!!!

I haven't tried it but probably will since I love okra and lamb. I found a tip that if you soak the okra in cold water and lime juice it reduces the sliminess whenever stewing or adding to a broth or soup. I normally let it sit in a bit of apple cider vinegar and water which also cuts down on the slime.
