"This Middle Eastern stew can make for some great comfort food. It only takes about half an hour to cook, and it's dead easy. This recipe is mostly Iranian in origin; the Iranians use okra instead of asparagus, but asparagus is much easier to find. If you can get a hold of some fresh okra, then it's easy to substitute." — antifreez

cubed lamb stew meat
ground black pepper
1/2 (6 ounce) can
fresh asparagus, trimmed and cut into 1 inch pieces
This was a really nice dish--the only thing I changed was the amount of asparagus. I shifted the ingredients to make enough for 5, and 1 large bunch of asparagus was more than enough. Really delicious and easy to make!
I enjoyed this, even though I needed to sub the tomato paste for ketchup because I forgot to pick it up at the store. I doubled the whole recipe, except the asparagus and we still had plenty asparagus! I think this would go perfect with some pita bread on the side as well.
Followed recipe, but have to say, it wasn't very tasty.
With just turmeric and 1 clove of garlic - it was rather bland. I don't think I'll make it again
