1 tbs tomato paste
½ cup salt reduced beef stock

- Combine the lamb, onion, garlic, coriander, and spices in a bowl and allow to marinate for at least an hour, preferably overnight.
- In a heavy based saucepan over high heat fry the lamb in batches until well coloured. Return all the lamb to the saucepan and add the remaining ingredients except for the tomatoes and olives. Cover and simmer for about 1 hour or until meat is tender. If more liquid is required use the juice from the tomatoes.
