    Easy and tasty. I added beans as well.  -  21 Jun 2013


    Is the lamb stock 100% necessary becuase as of yet i have not found one that is halal. If it is, is there anything you could add as a substitute?  -  22 Jul 2011  (Review from Allrecipes UK & Ireland)


    Altered ingredient amounts. I would dry fry the mince next time to drain off the excess fat  -  21 Mar 2010  (Review from Allrecipes UK & Ireland)
