"This is a wonderful and easy stovetop preparation that is a hearty meal for the whole family. I often serve it over rice or orzo, with a nice tomato and cucumber salad and good bread. A simple, fresh, and delicious taste of the Greek Isles!"

  1. Heat the olive oil in a large, heavy bottomed pot over medium-high heat. Season the lamb with salt and pepper, add to the pot, and cook until deeply browned, about 5 minutes on each side. Stir in the onions and garlic, and cook until lightly browned, about 2 minutes.
  2. Pour the wine into the pot, and bring to a boil while scraping the browned bits of food off of the bottom of the pan with a wooden spoon. Stir in the tomatoes, tomato sauce, lamb stock, lemon zest and juice, oregano, cinnamon, and bay leaf. Bring back to a boil over high heat, then reduce the heat to medium-low, cover, and simmer until the lamb is very tender, about 1 1/2 hours. Stir in the green beans and cook until they are tender, about 20 additional minutes.
  3. Remove the bay leaf and any bones from the stew. Garnish stew with chopped fresh parsley.

The flavour of this was very good, although I may use more lemon next time to get the zing I expect from Greek lamb dishes. Instead of chopped fresh tomatoes and tomoato sauce I just used to ca...

This was wonderful! I left out the lemon due to personal prefences and cooked it in the slow cooker for 5 hours on high. I used the Mavrodaphne (Greek dessert wine) I had on hand, which gave the...

I found a deal on lamb shoulder chops and without having a clue what to do with them, I snatched them up! Luckily I found this recipe. With the exception of using chicken stock in place of lamb ...

Great stew! I added a chopped red bell pepper toward the end, put in less tomatoes, used a bit more parsley fresh from our garden, and used dried red chinese hot pepper instead of black pepper. ...

Very tasty. Used nearly 2 lbs cubed shoulder roast meat and 1 each of canned diced tomatoes, crushed tomatoes and tomato sauce. Used two cans of green beans, chicken broth and about 1 cup burg...

This was very tasty. The only suggestion I have is to increase the amount of meat to 1 1/2 pounds.

I had this for dinner tonight cooked in the slow cooker, definitely a keeper but needs a bit of tweaking for my tastes. As I ate it I kept thinking something was really missing - realised it wa...
