Smelt divine, I made this for hubby and Little Miss (DD) and they both enjoyed it. I don't eat red meat, so I can't comment about the flavour, however I did sample the spice before I added on the lamb and it was yummy. I cooked it for about 35 minutes, (family prefers lamb medium). Served it with Recipe #264234 and steam broccoli. Thank you Jewelies
