There's nothing terribly wrong with the recipe, but on the whole it was a little thin and boring. I halved the lamb and kept the veggies the same, and it still didn't have enough substance. For braised meats, I've never felt that side dishes should be a necessity, but they are in this cause since you have a lot of thin sauce and very few veggies--overall, I felt it should've been more stew-like. My suggestions are to double the carrots, add a turnip or two, a rutabega, and two potatoes. It'll be a much heartier dish. I would also replace the chicken broth with beef only, doubling the amount and halving the wine (since the wine is just flavour, it is wasteful to use a whole bottle). Another addition might be to add a dark beer (a porter, perhaps) instead of the wine.
