    This is so very easy to make, and seriously good comfort food. Pop it in the oven and forget it, and a fairly 'forgiving' recipe, you really could add all kinds of things, depending on what you have to hand. This will go into rotation for sure.

    This exceeded all my expectations. I used young mutton (as recommended by the butcher) and the result was thoroughly delicious. On top of that the recipe is almost laughably easy to make - chop a few things up and throw everything in a pot. What more could you ask for? I adjusted the timings a bit for cooking in the aga - anything going into the simmering oven needs to be piping hot first, so I put it in the roasting oven for 1/2hr, 2-3hrs in the simmering oven and 15mins uncovered in the roasting oven.

    Delicious. Lamb is tender, and tasty.
