    Ian Snell's Note:

    My Aussie adaptation of a traditional Italian dish. Perfect for a cold winters night (we don't get many in Oz).

      Very easy to make and very tasty. The meat was beautifully tender. We thought it needed a tad more flavouring and next time will add several teaspoons of Italian herbs. Made and reviewed for Pick a Chef.

      Lovely! I must admit that I chose this recipe for interest value and had not expect it to be as good as it was. The meat was tender and the sauce was tasty. I did not add carrots and celery as suggested in 15, but found that it was very tasty as it was. Thanks for sharing.
