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!
