A traditional Greek method of preparing lamb by browning it in olive oil with onions then simmering in a tomato sauce.
Passata is an Italian tomato sauce made from sieved tomatoes (to remove the seeds and skin). If you don't have a jar of Passata, blend a can of crushed tomatoes as a substitute.
Although I followed the recipe to the letter, it just didn't taste as good as I thought it would. There were far too many beans and it was very watery. It was easy to make but tasted somewhat bland. My husband and I both decided this would not remain in the recipe box. - 29 Sep 2008
My mother gave this 4 stars, my father gave it 3 and I gave it 5 - so I'll settle on 4. I thought it was delicious, but I used lamb stew meat that was on the bone and it wasn't nearly enough meat. Next time I'd search until I found boneless lamb stew meat. Very tasty dish!! - 29 Sep 2008
I used beef instead of lamb and it was wonderful. It was served over rice and we tried it over pasta. Both were very tasty. - 29 Sep 2008
