This was such a great recipe-super fast and really tasty to boot! I used half the amount of lamb (shoulder chops we boned out) but all the sauce and a bit more silverbeet. Like Peggy, I seasoned my lamb well with salt and pepper. I'm not a fan of sultanas so used craisins instead. Why would get takeaways when you can throw this and the couscous together in minutes!

Superb recipe for lamb, and so quick and easy to make. I kept thinking I should be adding some onion or garlic, but didn't. I'm glad I restrained myself. The only thing it needed -- for our tastes -- was salt and ground pepper. I used a thick Greek yogurt and the leaves of a bunch of English spinach. I started the recipe in mid-afternoon, and turned the heat off and covered the pan as soon as I added the chopped spinach. Finished everything off later when dinnertime was approaching. Thank you so much for posting a recipe I will use again and again.
