This was good, in that it was not bad. But, it doesn't stand out to us. Possibly this was because I was too cheap to buy the pearl onions (which were $3/pound) and substituted a pound of regular Spanish onions, diced up. Having no memory of having eaten that type of onion other than canned (and not impressed with canned), I can't swear to it. The recipe didn't say whether to drain the tomatoes or not, so I didn't. I wound up using a cornstarch slurry to thicken the sauce -- after 20 minutes of simmering uncovered it was showing no signs of thickening, & we were hungry! :=) (Use 2 TSP cornstarch in 1/4 cup cold water; mix; add; bring to a boil & let bubble gently til thickened.) The cinnamon, nutmeg, & sugar do add a flavor here, but it isn't a dessert-like flavor. If you enjoy the things in this stew, you will probably like this recipe. I served this over white rice with a Greek salad on the side. Thanks for the recipe!
