friederike from Berlin,

Very nice, and quite simple! Easy enough to make it a weeknight staple, but tasty enough for guests, too! My only quibbles are that I think that 5 dried apricots is a little stingy, and that all in all, the dish itself isn't really generous either - we used 600g instead of 500g lamb and served it with Zahlouk and couscous, and it was just barely enough! Make sure you make about 1.5-2x the amount if you expect hungry eaters.

Also, I am considering trying this with beef instead of lamb - lamb is just too expensive around here. Will probably work, even though it'll need to braise a little longer.

Edited the next day:
Good god, I'm such an idiot! The recipe serves two only, so no wonder it was a little meager. The thing is - I knew, which is why I bought 600 g of lamb, as opposed to just 250 g, but apparently, I forgot that immediately again!

That said, for four servings, I'd definitely double or even double-and-a-half the amount of meat and apricots, but I'm not sure the rest of the ingredients need to be doubled - we quite liked it the way it was.
