    My husband raved over this and said it was the best way I had ever cooked it.  -  25 Oct 2007  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    I know the picture does not make the lamb look good, but trust me I had to make it two nights in a row. Made it for our anniversary. Wife loved it, my uncle that doesn't like lamb had seconds. A must try if you like lamb.  -  28 Sep 2014  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
