Great tasting and easy to make, just throw everything in and let it slow cook in the oven.

"Delicious dish and so easy to make. I highly recommend this dish for anyone. The longer it cooks the easier the lamb comes off the bone. A great dish to cook for dinner parties, have it in the oven and out of the way before the guests arrive. "

I used mince lamb, but followed the rest of the recipe. Very tasty and so fast to make. Will definitely be making this again.

This is great, and so easy. I didn't have Middle Eastern seasoning, so I made it up with cumin, cinnamon, coriander, thyme, and red pepper. I don't know how accurate that mix was, but it tasted great!
