This was my first time making a stew, ever! Ok, so the actual dish isn’t called a stew, but once I had finished making it that’s exactly what it looked like to me. And I have to say, this is one of the greatest ways to eat as many different vegetables as you can in one meal.
The recipe I’m sharing with you is adapted from the lamb in modern yellow mole recipe in my new favorite cookbook, Truly Mexican.
Moles are one of the main sauces of Mexican cooking and can range in their levels of difficulties as well as their consistency. They are made from a mixture of various ingredients that can include any of the following: chiles, spices/ herbs, tomatoes or tomatillos, and sometimes seeds (if they are mostly seed-base, they’re called pepianes).
