Oh my goodness! ... I'd rate this higher if I could! Easy, quick, and absolutely delicious. I'd eat it every night if I could. This served 3 of us (2 adults and a 17-y-o) with good substantial portions. Only difference I made was to add a tin of cherry tomatoes instead of fresh ones as I'd run out of fresh, and to add slightly more of each spice. Served with a Couscous recipe (that was listed as part of another meal), which I tweaked and was also really yummy.

Very easy and very tasty. However, I'd say it's for 2 not 4. Next time I'll be doubling everything

Have just made this again. I cant believe it has been 2 yrs since I first made it. I doubled the amount of lean lamb, used diced carrot in place of courgettes and included roast tomato paste. I served it with giant Mediteranian Couscous. It was fantastic, great colours and full of flavour. Just a note though. If there is any stock left in the pan DO NOT THROW IT AWAY. Use as Chefs treat, wonderful.

Lovely - I doubled the amount of spices listed, and also added chopped coriander stalks with the peppers to add a bit more flavour. I used lamb neck fillet so cooked for a bit longer. Really tasty for such a low cal dish.

I used harissa spice rather than the individual spices recommended in the recipe and added a tin of chopped toms towards the end of cooking. I also used somewhere closer to 350g of lamb and a touch more stock. Will cook again, nice simple recipe with plenty of flavour.

Needs more spices because it was fairly bland. Partly my own fault for not using better quality lamb

Lovely, I didn't have cherry tomatoes so used ordinary tomatoes cut into large chunks.

Me and my family really love this dish. It's easy to make and always tastes fantastic. Would definitely recommend if you're looking for a nice mid week dinner alternative.

Just made this for the first time. Used a leek in place of green pepper. I had a packet of micro wave puy lentils flavoured with porcini mushrooms. I added these and increased the stock slightly, serving it with new potatoes. It became an instant favourite and I will cook it again. My daughter copied me using puy lentils but not being a lover of lamb used chicken. Again first class results. This meal lends itself to being served with a variety of foods such as rice, pappardelle potatoes couscous etc.

Delicious! I swapped the lamb fillets for Quorn lamb style strips to make it vegetarian, and it was lovely. Also, it was very healthy and filling which made it even better!

Lacked flavour, could have used some red wine, and salt to taste. We had it with ciabatta.

I added 250 ml of stock and a tin of chopped tomatoes, I used dried oregano instead of fresh Corriander and I cooked it for 2 hours... It was the most tender lamb I've ever eaten it was lovely :)

Really tasty + really easy. Used neck fillet and cooked it for a bit longer = perfect. Plenty of black pepper in the seasoning and the spices give it a gentle warmth. Will be cooking again.

Used tinned tomatoes and only had green peppers but otherwise stuck to the recipe and it was lovely.

I made this last night following the recipe to the letter, it got very good reviews with the family- my daughter said it was the best lamb she had ever tasted!! lovely with taziki and nan!

Very easy recipe. Added mushrooms and 1 1/2 tsp Cheyenne pepper and doubled the spices. I have tried a few of the lamb recipes on this and other sites and mostly been dissapointed (can't seem to find anything better than roasted lamb with mint sauce) but this was outstanding will defInatly make again. Served with some cous cous.

Followed the recipe but we thought it was a bit bland. Won't be making again.

Absolutely delicious! Doubled the meat quantity.. added some tomato puree, herbs, mushroom ketchup. Served with Mediterranean Tomato Couscous & crusty bread! A family favourite!

Also used neck fillet. Not really sure what made this meal so satisfying, but it was very enjoyable. Served with couscous.

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.
