Made as written for the Happy Campers & CQ4 (Himalayas Region) & served w/spicy cous cous. Lamb is the staple meat of Iceland, so we look forward to new & adventurous ways to cook it. "Stewing lamb" (as you called it) isn't typical of most stew meat & frankly is hard to cut into cubes. The cuts vary from sml shanks to sml chops, thin strips of meat after its fat-trimmed & then the odds & ends. So I trimmed it well & began browning it - A bit too much I think as some meat had a bit of a crunch. The top part of the casserole was fairly dry, but a nice broth had accumulated at the bottom. A quick stir at the mid-point of oven-baking or placing the meat atop the other ingredients might have corrected the dryness. The flavor was excellent & Siggi complimented the outcome w/enthusiasm. I guess my doubt came from not knowing what to expect & fearing I had somehow failed your recipe when the texture was so dry. Siggi has already asked for an encore, so I'll do even better next time. Thx for sharing this recipe w/us. :-)
