Ingredients
  Vegetable oil 4 Tablespoon
  Trimmed lamb stew 3 Pound, cut into 1 1/2 inch cubes
  Garlic clove 2 Large, peeled and crushed
  Soy sauce 6 Tablespoon
  Dark molasses 1 1⁄2 Tablespoon
  Smooth peanut butter 1⁄2 Cup (8 tbs)
  Dark brown sugar 1⁄3 Cup (5.33 tbs)
  Fresh lemon juice 4 Tablespoon
  Ground red pepper 1⁄4 Teaspoon
  Salt To Taste
  Freshly ground black pepper To Taste
  Water 3⁄4 Cup (12 tbs)
  Chopped peanuts 1⁄2 Cup (8 tbs)
  Chopped fresh coriander/Chopped flat-leaf parsley 3 Tablespoon (Cilantro, For Garnish)
Directions

In a large, heavy casserole, heat 2 tablespoons of the oil over medium-high heat until hot.
Add just enough lamb to cover the bottom of the pan without crowding and brown on all sides.
Remove the pieces with a slotted spoon to a bowl.
Continue until all the meat is browned, adding additional oil as needed.
Add the garlic and, after a few seconds, the soy sauce, molasses, peanut butter, brown sugar, lemon juice, red pepper, salt and pepper.
Stir, scraping up any browned cooking bits, and mix well.
Stir in 1/2 cup of the water.
Return the meat to the casserole, cover, and simmer until the meat is very tender, stirring occasionally, about 40 to 45 minutes.
If the sauce becomes too thick, add the remaining water.
A few minutes before serving, stir in the chopped peanuts.
Sprinkle with the coriander or parsley before serving.
