3 lb (1.5 kg) boneless lamb shoulder
1 tbsp (15 mL) extra-virgin olive oil
3 onions, sliced
6 cloves garlic, minced
1 tbsp (15 mL) dried oregano
1 tbsp (15 mL) grated lemon rind
1/4 tsp (1 mL) salt
Pinch each allspice and cinnamon
2 tbsp (25 mL) all-purpose flour
2 cups (500 mL) beef stock
1/4 cup (50 mL) tomato paste
1 can (398 mL) artichoke hearts, drained and quartered
1/2 cup (125 mL) crumbled feta cheese
2 tbsp (25 mL) chopped fresh parsley
Drain any fat from pan. Add onions, garlic, oregano, lemon rind, salt, allspice and cinnamon; cook over medium heat, stirring occasionally, until onions are softened, about 5 minutes.
Sprinkle with flour; cook, stirring, for 1 minute. Add beef stock and tomato paste; bring to boil, stirring and scraping up any brown bits from bottom of pan.
Return lamb and any accumulated juices to pan; cover and simmer until lamb is tender, about 45 minutes. Add artichokes and heat through, about 15 minutes. (Make-ahead: Let cool for 30 minutes. Transfer to airtight container; refrigerate, uncovered, until cold. Cover and refrigerate for up to 2 days or freeze for up to 2 weeks.) Serve sprinkled with feta cheese and parsley.
