    I have been trying for the last couple of weeks so many receipes trying to find something that is yummy. Not a little bit yummy but like melt in your mouth yummy. WELL EVERYONE STOP LOOKING. This was so amazingly yummy. Cooked heaps no left overs. How simple. Remember no liquid. So yummy. Serve with mash potatoes and vegs . But serve it with anything. The only difference from receipe is as follows. I never follow a receipe. Salt and pepper and bolognese mixed herbs ( just a sprinkle ). A good covering of plum jam ( just like a piece of toast). Definitely more than a teaspoon. Now please anyone that knows other yummy receipes please send to my email address How simple is this recipe! ! Thanks so much to anyone that leave me a yummy receipe.  -  02 May 2016  (Review from Allrecipes AU | NZ)


    I was hopeful when I read all the positive reviews about this recipe, but I'm afraid to say my attempt turned out terribly The chops were tough and dry - waste of time, of the lamb, which are going to the dogs because the chops are FAR to tough to eat.. I followed the recipe to the letter, even slow cooked at 150 degrees for 3 hours - I won't ever be making this one again.  -  09 Nov 2017  (Review from Allrecipes AU | NZ)
