  • Brown lamb in a heavy, large skillet then remove.
  • In the skillet saute the onion and garlic with the olive oil until onion is opaque and garlic is slightly browned.
  • Stir in chicken broth and bring to a boil.
  • Mix lamb, potatoes and beans together and add to broth reducing heat to simmer or low.
  • Cover and cook for 45 minutes.
  • Baste occasionally so nothing drys out.
  • If the liquid gets low, add more broth.
  • When you reach a cooking time of 35 minutes ADD the lemon juice.
  • Place on platter and serve.
  • NOTE you can use canned green beans in place of fresh-HOWEVER, do not add them until the last 10 minutes so that they are not overcooked.
  • The canned green bean water can be used as liquid in place of additional broth.

Notes

This recipe came from a friend of many years. Talitha was Greek and said her grandmother made this.
