Really delicious, richly-flavoured stew. The warm spices just lend themselves to making one of the best gravies ever. Served over buttered orzo.

This was really good. The recipe makes a pretty thick stew. I needed a bit more volume, so added 4 more cups of beef broth and 1/4 cup cornstarch dissolved in water (to keep it thick). Flavor was amazing.

Sensational stew. You should smell my kitchen -- heavenly. I halved the recipe, but was a bit heavy-handed with the artichoke hearts. I have a 2-kilo jar of them, and guessed generously. I don't own a slow cooker, so put this in the oven for about four hours at just under 100-degrees Centigrade.

To echo the other reviews, this was a great. The only alteration I made was to use 1/2 tsp of cinnamon and 1/2 tsp of allspice instead of a pinch as we really full flavours. Lovely! Made for ZWT6

Wow! Just like MissMaggie said. I also halved the recipe but followed the directions. Mine was perfectly done in 7 hours too. Everything about this recipe was delightful. I'd never used artichoke hearts in cooking and it was yummy. Thanks for sharing such a nice recipe. Made for ZWT 6.

Oh wow! this was soooo good even though I stuff up in one area. As there are only two of us, I halved the lamb, onions, garlic and artichoke hearts but kept everything else the same. I accidently put in a 1/4 teaspoon of allspice instead of salt BUT I don't think it spoiled the taste. Cooked it on low heat for 7 hours and it just melted in the mouth as we ate it. Having left overs for lunch today. Many thanks for an easy but tasty recipe.
