A recipe I hadn't done in a while. Left it to cook very slowly in a low oven, and served with mashed spuds. Half way through eating realised I left off the gremolata :( Thats my excuse for doing it again soon !

A delicious family meal that I've been making for years. This was just perfect for a cold night in Aus, served over creamy mashed potatoes with steamed veg. I always love the flavour burst from the gremolata. Thanks for reminding me of a favourite Terese.
