      This is so delicious! The only lamb i could get was a tray of lamb steaks, so I used those (just cut them into smaller pieces). I couldn't get fresh mint, so I used a generous sprinkling of dried. After I had cooked the lamb and onion, and stirred the beans through for a few minutes, i transferred it to my slow cooker, and added the rest of the ingredients there. I cooked it on high for 3 hours, and it was perfect! We served it with creamy mashed potatoes and some steamed yellow squash. [Made for Aus/NZ Recipe Swap]

      EXCELLENT - cut up and diced leg of lamb meat. Made it very tender. Most Greek recipes use a pinch of cinnamon - added just the right flavor. Served over rice. 5 Star Recipe!!!
