Directions

Heat oil in an 8-quart Dutch oven or other large pot over high heat until hot but not smoking. Season meat lightly with salt and pepper and sear in oil until browned on all sides, about 5 minutes. Add onions and garlic and cook an additional 5 minutes. Add tomato paste and stir to incorporate, cooking for 2 to 3 minutes. Add celery, carrots, parsnips, chick peas, wine, chicken broth, tomato sauce, orange zest, segments and juice, and cumin. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat, cover and simmer until lamb is tender, about 90 minutes. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Remove from heat, cool slightly, and ladle into bowls. Top with fresh mint and serve.

    OMG, this recipe is so good! I even got my husband to eat chickpeas, and he normally HATES them! I'm wondering how it would work in a slow cooker.

    Fabulous! It's a go to recipe for weekend guests. I use pork tenderloin instead of lamb as it's hard to get where I live.
