Lamb Curried Casserole with Sweet Potatoes

Yum
Lamb for some is an acquired taste but when it is cooked properly the taste and how your body responds to it makes it one of the better meats out there to eat as our bodies digest it better then other meats. I always enjoyed a lamb dish, its one of those dishes that not only is full of flavour but it came with a ton of vegetables. Lamb is full of protein, zinc and iron. Lamb also provides high levels of Vitamin B12.Lamb was always a meal during the Easter holiday and my mom made sure there was always plenty for seconds.

This dish is not a one quick meal dish so it might be best to give this a try on a weekend and see how it goes for you. I find that leg of lamb is the best part of the lamb for this dish and you also get six different types of vegetables. You should make sure use a low sodium beef broth a  red wine that is a little sweeter in nature, but if you prefer dry then go for it. When this dish is done not only will it taste great but the lamb will be so tender it will literally melt in your mouth.
