Spicy dry lamb experiment

well it was at first just throwing in whatever i thought would taste good and in the end it did :)
its juicy soft lamb, but not exactly a curry. I had it with simple cinnamon steamed rice. Tasted really good. Hope you like it. Sorry i don't know measurements, i just threw in all the stuff, according to what i felt.

  • Lamb, boneless cut into thin strips - 1/2 kg

  • honey to make it slightly sweet

  • fresh ground pepper (as per taste) plenty to make a bit spicy
