Plum lamb casserole

    1 hour 40 min

    A family favourite. I don't even like chops and I like this recipe! I ran out of plum jam for this recipe once and used apricot instead. It still tasted good. I normally leave out the celery.

    Yum! Very easy and very tasty!  -  08 Jul 2014


    Didn't have plum jam so used plum sauce and also omitted the celery, just added another carrot. Also cooked in the slow cooker on low for 6 hours. Turned out great.  -  02 Aug 2011  (Review from Allrecipes AU | NZ)


    Mopped up the delicious, rich sauce with some warm, buttered rolls. A wonderful, comforting dish for winter.  -  09 Mar 2011  (Review from Allrecipes AU | NZ)
