You need to make this! We used a little bit less lamb (had a 3 lb bone-in lamb roast and only used half of the meat), but it was still plenty of meat. Didn't have enough garlic either, but it was still delicious. I put everything in one 8x8 square baking dish and then topped with the bean mixture (like you would with a traditional shepherd's pie's potatoes). Turned out fantastic and worth the time it takes to make!

OMG with this recipe. It is amazing. I did substitute chicken thighs because we don't eat red meat but ... even with the chicken thighs... this is going in the recipe book. Total keeper.

The chickpeas-as-mashed-potatoes don't really work, though they're not bad. On the other hand the lamb stew itself is fantastic and I'm likely to make it again on its own.

This was excellent! Followed the recipe exactly. My husband said this was one to keep.

A wonderful winter dish; savory with just a touch of sweet with the dried fruit. In addition to the dried apricots (CA, not Turkish), I used regular raisins and tossed in some dried currants as well. Definitely one I'll make again!
