Very tasty and so easy to make. I used lamb neck fillet and it worked really well. I was surprised how tender it was with how short a time it's cooking for.

Excellent - quick and easy - fiddled with the spices a bit. Will definitely cook again.

FAB U LOUS!!! added loads of stuff so cant make it excately again!!! tripled the lamb so was willy nilly chucking in spices, add lamb stock cube, 2 tsps of dried chilli flakes, 1tbs garam masala, doubled up on the recipe spices, and half a bunch of fresh corriander, served it with desiree mashed potato, with spring onion and carrot, the gravy was very flavoursome, and i have loads left for when i am too rushed to make a dinner!!!

Very nice - used courgettes,peppers & tomatoes from the garden & served with crispy potatoes. I did add a Lamb stock cube to mine as I found it needed a bit more oomph,plus a squirt of Umami paste.

I agree with SEBUAE, not much flavour. Goes well with couscous to mop up juices, makes a good quantity.

First time making this, the sauce was delicious added a pinch of chilli flakes which added more flavour. Healthy and surprisingly filling!! Will cook again, a nice change to the usual lamb recipes.

I made this last week and added chestnut mushrooms at the same time as the peppers, it was really delicious and the lamb was really tender. I will definitley be making it again.

As I was cooking for vegetarians as well, I cooked lamb on skewers separately and served with the mediterranean vegetables, crusty bread and houmous. The vegetables cooked beautifully and tasted lovely.

I would like to try this recipe but can't have the peppers; anything else I can substitute? I was thinking of maybe using aubergines but don't know if that would work..........

Loved this recipe - also cooked the lamb for longer in the oven on a low heat which made it very tender

Another excellent, tasty recipe. Did not change a thing!

made this last night - added tomato puree and chicken stock as opposed to vegetable stock. I loved it - and this is the first recipe i have ever rated and have used this website for a couple of years. Definately will make again - beautiful flavours - cant wait till lunch have brought leftovers to work and will have with a green salad

Lovely recipe. I added a tin of chopped tomatoes and doubled the spices to compensate. Also added 100ml of red wine to the stock. I cooked the lamb slowly and for longer to get it tender, and then left it on the hob to reduce for 30-45 mins. Served it with some tszaki and garlic and coriander naans. We loved it!
