Meat stew is a traditional dish in Macedonia. Veal stew, tripe stew and chicken stew (and somewhere and fish stew) are served in every restaurant every day from morning till afternoon. You can't easily find lamb stew on the regular menu. Lamb stew is usually served and prepared in homes during Easter. But if you want to prepare it in any time of the year, then, here's a great recipe.

  • 1 parsley root
