Family favourite especially on cold winter days. Easy to make in the slow cooker. A hearty and warming supper. My toddler loves it too, and its a great way to get kids to eat fruit without them even noticing!
I freeze up batches of this already mixed with couscous for toddler dinners!
This dish was a fantastic success! The meat melted in the mouth and the sauce was delicious! Saying that, I used one tablespoon of tomato puree instead of three and threw in four chillis to make it HOT. I added one lamb stock cube to the boiling water and only used one star anise as it has quite a strong taste. I pre-cooked the lamb and then put it all in the slow cooker for 7 hours. A perfect dish for lamb lovers who like a lot of flavour. - 18 Jun 2010
no i did not like this it was too strong on the flavour side , but i had fun making it, if i tried again i would cut out the chillies and maybe the star anise - 02 Nov 2011
Wow! This was absolutely amazing! We're always on the lookout for new recipes using the slow cooker. This one was a knockout! We didn't have prunes and used honey instead of agave nectar and it turned out so very delicious! Thanks so much for sharing - 26 Jun 2012 (Review from Allrecipes AU | NZ)
