Slow cooked lamb, green beans, and potato, in a savory tomato broth spiked with cumin and allspice.


2 teaspoons cumin
2 teaspoons allspice
1 teaspoon coriander
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 1/4 pounds lamb shoulder
42 ounce canned diced tomatoes
4 small golden potatoes
12 ounce green beans
1 large onion sliced
3 cloves garlic
2 cups stock
1 can cannellini beans


1. Cut the lamb into 1 inch pieces, dry, salt, pepper, and very lightly coat with flour. Cook in a pot on very high heat in a small amount of olive oil until browned. do this in 2 batches, making sure to brown everything really nicely. Remove the meat from the pan and set aside.

2. Add the onion to the pan, scraping the pan to release any brown bits. If there is any stubborn brown bits that are beginning to burn, splash a little water into the pan and they should come off easily. Cook the onions until they are beginning to brown. Add the garlic and cook 2 minutes. Add the spices and stir to coat everything.

3. Add the tomatoes and taste, adjusting salt and spices if needed. Return the lamb to the pot and simmer for about 2 hours.

4. Chop the potatoes into big chunks and add to the pot. Add stock if you need more liquid. Simmer 20 minutes.

5. Add the green beans (and again more stock if needed) and simmer 40 minutes or until potatoes and green beans are tender. Add cannellini beans and cook 5 more minutes. Remove from heat and serve with rice.

Best Restaurants in America If you eat out in the U.S.A. and want the best dining experiences possible, this guide is for you What makes a good restaurant a “best”? Food that’s better than just good, of course. A dining room and a level of service that suit the quality of what’s on the plate. A good wine list (which doesn’t always mean an encyclopedic one), good beers and/or cocktails where appropriate. And then the less easily quantifiable stuff: personality, imagination (or intelligent commitment to a lack of same), consistency. 101 Best Restaurants in America (Gallery) When we were a young website, way back in 2011, we drew up our first 101 ranking ourselves, making a list of the places where we, The Daily Meal’s editors, liked to eat. Taking into consideration our mood, our budget, and where we happened to be when we get hungry, how would we vote, we asked ourselves — not only with our critical faculties but with our mouths and our wallets? Where would we send friends? Where would we want to dine if we had one night in this city or that? By this method, we ended up with a shortlist of 150 places. Then we argued, advocated, and cajoled each other on behalf of restaurants ranging from old-fashioned to avant-garde, ultra-casual to super-fancy. Finally, we invited an illustrious panel of judges (restaurant critics, food and lifestyle writers, and bloggers) from across America to help order restaurants via an anonymous survey and tallied results to assemble a ranked list. Upstairs, the simple Scandinavian-style dining room is kitted out with tables that look like tangled tree trunks, carved by Tom senior. The ingredient-led 12-course tasting menu is constantly changing (you might spot one of the chefs picking a final herb flourish outside minutes before it hits your plate). Starters could include a mouthful of smoked eel and apple, or an exploding dumpling of ox cheek and lovage. A crapaudine beetroot slow-cooked in beef fat is meaty in texture as well as flavour, and local lamb is paired with turnip and mint. Even the bread with sour butter is sensational. Afterwards you’ll be grateful for the walk through the village to a pretty rose-covered house where some of the nine bedrooms have antique oak four-posters and copper bateau baths. Wake to the sound of cows mooing in the next field and head back to the inn for a simple breakfast of sheep’s yogurt with fresh berry compote and house granola or toasted brioche heaped with mushrooms and a duck egg. Unsurprisingly, the most talked about restaurant in Yorkshire is often full, so book it quick. By Tabitha Joyce.
