    My nan used to make this delicious meal with leftovers. It is now one of our favourites. Lamb chops can be used as an alternative to lamb shoulder.

    A very simple dish with good results (all plates were emptied!) The adding of a tin of chopped tomatoes does make the dish a bit sweet so I would recommend seasoning before baking (something I never do nowadays preferring to season to taste once served) Thanks to Nan!!!  -  17 Dec 2013
