My husband tweaked this to make it his own. I was never really big on lamb, until my husband started cooking it for me. This is absolutely a knock-your-socks-off dinner! Be warned, however.... Everything is cooked in the bacon fat! But, this is the best tasting Lamb Stew I have ever had! Definitely a keeper for special occasions.
