      I left out the sugar but followed the recipe exactly. This was sooo good. We eat quite a lot of lamb here in Iceland so i loved this method of cooking them. We had oven baked potatoes with it and sour cream. We did not have the sauce with it but i will make it next time. Made for Ramadan Tag Game 2009
