Cuminiya - Libyan Lamb stew

Submitted by: SMMGRAHAM

Introduction

A Libyan favorite. This is my MIL's(Allah rahumha-RIP) recipe, passed to me by my SIL. My big change was I cook lower fat. They would have fried the onions in 1/4c or more of oil. They have fed as many as 20 people off this recipe served on Italian bread.

Serve to be dipped out with bread approximately 1c per serving. Can also be served as sloppy sandwiches.
