Lamb and Sweet Potato Stew

With a perfect balance of sweet and savory, this Lamb and Sweet Potato Stew hits all the right notes when a cold front blows in. The stew is cozy, mildly smokey with just the right amount of fragrant spices.

This one-pot meal comes together easily by tossing together the toasted spices with cubed lamb, then cooking it with onions and tomato paste before simmering in red wine and chicken broth. Before serving add cubed sweet potato, prunes, and citrus zest for a sweet finish.


1/2 teaspoon whole cumin seeds

1/2 teaspoon whole peppercorn
