Mediterranean Lamb and Lentil Stew

Reviewed: Jun. 3, 2008
I hate to be one of those people who changes the recipe and then reviews it, but alas, my nature can't help fiddling... when I think lamb and lentils, I think Middle Eastern, so I switched up the spices a bit, but this is a great recipe nonetheless and one I will certainly make again and again! Changes I made were: 1) used lamb loin chops instead of shoulder arm because that's all I could find 2) altered spices to about 1/4 tsp each of fresh rosemary and thyme, plus 1/2 tsp each of freshly-ground coriander and cumin, a pinch or 2 of garam masala, a pinch of powdered ginger, and lots of freshly-ground black pepper 3) cut the lemon to half, because after tasting found that was plenty (and I'm a lemon fanatic) 4) used crushed tomatoes instead of diced because I have an anti-tomato-chunk person in the family 5) added about 1/4 cup red wine and 6) cooked in a slow cooker after browning lamb and cooking onion and garlic. Don't mean to insult the creator at all, because I'm sure it's fantastic the original way, and it was fantastic with a couple alterations! Seriously yummy!
