This was delicious! I don't have a slow cooker, so I just cooked it on the stove at lowest heat for 5 hours. Still came out amazing though. I used Turkish dried apricots which might be a bit too sweet. Next time I will use the Royal apricots. I wonder if I could add chilies for some bite?

Delicious! I used 2.5 lb bone-in lamb stew meat, added more dried fruit (apple and prune), doubled the spices, substituted 1 qt vegetable broth for the beef broth and omitted the parsnips and cayenne. Cooked in the slow cooker all day (about 9 hours).
