This Herbed  Lamb or Beef Stew Recipe is just excellent. What a great combination of spices and other ingredients. This recipe was handed off to me by my boss. He said it was great-he was right- my whole family enjoyed it. Use fresh spices instead of dried if you have them available and double the amount. This recipe originally called for 2 cups water with beef bouillon granules. I changed it to beef stock instead. This is a great fall meal. Give it a try you’ll love it. Enjoy!
