1 1/2 pounds
lamb stew meat
fresh green beans, washed and trimmed
1 (15 ounce) can
salt and pepper to taste
chopped fresh mint leaves
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.
Although I followed the recipe to the letter, it just didn't taste as good as I thought it would. There were far too many beans and it was very watery. It was easy too make but tasted somewhat bland. My husband and I both decided this would not remain in the recipe box.
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!
I used london broil instead of lamb and it was wonderful.
It was served over rice and we tried it over egg noodles. Both were very tasty.
So delicious! I followed other reviewer suggestions and made a few changes... more meat (2 lbs), fewer beans (1 lb), and use stewed tomatoes (2 cans, replacing the tomato sauce and water). It was delicious served over quinoa, and very healthy!
I needed a different idea for dinner - and used this one! I used my slow cooker - on high for the first 2 hours - then on low for another 3. Regarding the ingredients: I added 1 28-oz can crushed tomatoes, 1/2 cup water, and 1/3 cup ruby port. I added lots of dried mint, Herbs de Provence, and a little sugar. I did brown the onion and meat - and used about 2 cups of French cut frozen green beans - came out just fantastic - will use again and again!!! For us - this dish must be served with warm, crusty bread!!! Melt in your mouth comfort food - great for our 12 degree night here!
We really liked this recipe. I read all the reviews and ended up using 2 cans of diced tomatoes (seasoned w/ garlic & basil)in place of the tomato sauce, and 1 C. of beef stock in place of the water. Also, I used frozen green beans because I had those on hand. It turned out delicious... kind of a "stoup" as Rachel Ray would say... a cross between a stew and a soup. I served this w/ couscous... very yummy! Next time I think I'd serve some Feta cheese on the side to sprinkle on top... oh, and don't leave out the mint. It makes the dish (IMO) :)
