Why I Love This Recipe

This dish has such a wonderful aroma, but be warned: the house/kitchen will smell after making this. I found it on but altered it a bit. The recipe called for boneless chuck roast, cut into 3/4" cubes but I used lamb instead. If you prefer, you could decrease the red wine to 1 cup and add 1/2 cup of dry sherry although I just used red wine. It received rave reviews and is best served over couscous.

Ingredients You'll Need

3 tbsp. olive oil, divided
2 1/2 lbs. lamb, cut into 3/4" cubes
2 cups chopped onion
3 garlic cloves, chopped
1 tbsp. garam masala
1 tbsp. paprika
1 tsp. ground cumin
1/2 tsp. turmeric
1/2 tsp. cayenne pepper
1 1/2 cup dry red wine
2 cups beef broth
1 (14 1/2 oz.) can diced tomatoes in juice
3/4 cup golden raisins
3/4 cup dried apricots

Sprinkle meat with salt and pepper.

Add meat to pot; saute until no longer pink, about 5 minutes.

Transfer meat to bowl.

Heat 1 tbsp. oil in same pot.
