    Where did I go wrong? I had a lovely lamb joint and i followed all the instructions but the liquid was terrible tasting. I used a good shiraz red wine too. I have put three stars but it must be something I have done wrong surely. Lamb was lovely but had to put on the old bisto.  -  12 Jul 2011


    Very nice but it does not need 7hours in slow cooker on high 5 hours. I added cornflour to the wine mixed with a bit of water so it makes a gravy.  -  09 May 2013
