    I made this because I had some rutabaga to use and it came out well. I substituted halibut for the lamb and it worked well (obviously different cook time). The caper sauce worked well with the mashed veg and balanced the sweetness of the carrots in the mash.

    My favorite way to cook lamb - fall off the bone tender. I also quarter an onion and slice a lemon and put on top and bottom for roasting. I'm not a fan of mint, so I leave it and vinegar out of gravy. Save some of your potato water and mix with flour to make a slurry to thicken - finish with a pat of butter off heat. The mashed veggies are great and even my hubby who hates cooked carrots will inhale them. I usually serve with roasted asparagus and not the greens.

    Great lamb recipe - tender and falling off the bone. Add lots of rosemary while in the oven. I serve this with roast vegetables and keep the leftover lamb for lunches. Mum has made the accompanying sauce once but I don't think it's anything special.
