  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.

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.

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.
