Recipe Notes

The meat should be tender and be falling apart after the double cooking it's experienced. 

You could make the juices thicker by adding some corn flour but I like a thin broth.

  1. This made me hungry!!!! And I have never eaten lamb before. Venison fills the shelves in my freezer.

    1. Lamb is really common in Australia. Lamb exports are very important for Australian trade too. We have some local deer which was imported when the English colonised Australia. I prefer lamb because it’s fat has a lot of flavour.

  2. Looks so beautifully done, Gaz. It looks succulent. Also lovely to see that you have picture-icons in your recipe now. Love it. It looks like something I’d read in a cook book…one step closer to a cook book 😉

    90 minutes is a bit long to me to cook a meal. But since it is the weekend, you have plenty of time 😀

    1. Thanks Mabel. I’ve been listening to a few food blogging podcasts and have installed a new recipe plugin.
      The cook book will be easier with recipe cards 😃
