5lb. lamb
5 cups chopped onion
5 cloves garlic, minced
2 tsp. cinnamon
2 tsp. allspice
12 oz. tomato paste
3 lb. green beans, trimmed
1) Cube and brown meat in a large skillet. Remove from pan. 
2) Saute onion and garlic in the pan drippings until soft. 
3) Place meat, bones from meat, onions, garlic, and green beans in a large stock pot. Cover with water. Bring to a simmer. 
4) Add tomato paste, cinnamon, and allspice. Season with salt and pepper to taste. 
5) Cover half-way and simmer for 30-45 minutes, until liquid has reduced slightly and become slightly thick (like a stew). 
6) Serve with white rice and toasted pine nuts. Dollop greek yogurt on top and enjoy!
