      I just added a bit more of Worcestershire sauce(a dash was simply nothing for my taste!), and used fresh herbs, also a bit more than a pinch.. Simply tasty and with a truly wonderful smell when I removed it from fire. My husband was raving about it, even without tasting!! Thanks for sharing this recipe with us!

      Made pretty much as written, doubled everything, and used more water and Gravox supreme gravy mix. made enough for about 20 rolls, which sold very quickly at the tuckshop! Thanks Chrissyo
