Cuminiya - Libyan Lamb stew

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.Submitted by SMMGRAHAM

This is similar to the recipe I was given just before I married my husband from Libya by another American/Libyan wife.

Cooking times not exact. Always taste & adjust spices to your taste. My measurements may be off as I tend to get inspired as I cook.Submitted by SMMGRAHAM
