This recipe is awesome and other than getting the seeds out of the pomegranate, it was pretty easy!
Made this for my boyfriend. He loved it! Very tender and juicy. Paired it with butternut squash for a nice fall dinner.
What a delicious recipe! My husband, kids and I loved this lamb. Very tasty and so juicy. I highly recommend this recipe for those who like Moroccan style stews and lamb. I didn't have lamb chops only shoulder. I followed the recipe and pulled the lamb meat with a fork. This is now a family favorite!
I made this for my girldfriend's birthday dinner and it was a hit. Her friend who wasn't a fan of lamb couldn't believe how much she loved it! So simple and easy to make, just like Chef John says in the video, you cant mess this recipe up.
