    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


Trim fat from lamb; cut into 1-inch (2.5 cm) cubes. In shallow Dutch oven, heat oil over medium-high heat; brown lamb, in batches. Transfer to plate.

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.
