Hearty lamb stew with peppers and onions stewed in sherry
Portions: 6 persons | Preparation: 200 minutes
What is a sherry? A Spanish fortified white wine that gives a special touch to this lamb stew. After the long stewing time at low heat, the lamb becomes very tender and literally melts in your mouth. A hearty, delicious main meal that goes very well with a sliced baguette.
