Mediterranean lamb stew recipe

I am going to be honest with you. I think lamb taste gamey. Some may say it’s an acquired taste. The hubby loves it—while I shy away from it.

However, this stew is SO tasty. I added a special ingredient that really balances the pungent flavor of lamb.

The secret ingredient is lemon. That’s right, lemon. Think about it, fish is… well, fishy. Not that I don’t enjoy the taste of fish by all means. Needless to say, fish is better with lemon. Same concept.

Without a doubt, this lamb stew recipe is amazing with a squirt of lemon juice right at the end.

Ingredients To Make Mediterranean Lamb Stew

Boneless Lamb Stew MeatThis recipe calls for 2 pounds of lamb. I used grass-fed, halal lamb from Open Nature.
Onion & GarlicThey will help to build amazing flavor and aroma.
CuminHas a nice meaty flavor and pairs perfectly with red meat.
Roasted TomatoesUnlike regular tomatoes, fire-roasted tomatoes are going to give it a nice smoky flavor. However, if you are unable to find fire-roasted, use what you have access to.
Vegetable BrothInstead of adding water, vegetable broth is going to add the cooked-all-day flavor we are looking for.
Other Essential IngredientsOlive oil, fresh mint, parsley, kosher salt, and pepper.

I am so excited for you to make this Mediterranean Lamb Stew recipe!
