This was really rather good. I tweeked a couple of elements as a sop to my own taste buds, but stayed true to the core recipe..... & it was delicious; big, ballsy flavours. My biggest change was substituting corainader for parsley - perhaps my least favourite herb. Other changes saw the addition of a quinoa & a pomegranate salad, & a small focaccia to help mop up the mouth-watering juices.... ...... & whilst a crisp, light dry white was obviously the classy companion, an ice cold glass of Scrumpy Jack was perfect. During cooking, I left the dish on the hob rather than move to the oven - this didn't seem to have any detrimental impact. So, quite a few changes I suppose, but as I've said, the core recipe is a good one. This was a delicious, most-flavoursome dinner.
