First of all, this is an excellent recipe! Due to personal preferences, I made a few changes by substituting olive oil for the butter, used boneless leg of lamb instead of the shoulder (as it was available), used can of organic chopped tomatoes instead of the whole tomatoes, used 1/2 can of the tomato paste instead of 1 tablespoon and substituted chicken broth for the water. I took another reviewer's advice and soaked the peeled and chopped eggplant in salt water for 30 minutes before using. My husband was sceptical about this recipe at first but once he tried this delicious stew, he told me this was a 'keeper' recipe and I agree. The prep time was a little longer than noted and I cooked about 30 minutes longer than noted (personal preference). This recipe is easily doubled and it can be served as a stand-alone stew. Thank you for this great "keeper" recipe!!!
