    Very tasty and simple recipe. Washed down with a good bottle of greek red, it all goes together very nicely.  -  21 Mar 2011  (Review from Allrecipes UK & Ireland)


    Partner loved this and I liked it so this is a recipe we will repeat. I did it with mixed root veg, chunked red onion, unpeeled garlic cloves and lamb chops. As I used lamb chops I cooked the vegetables alone first and added the chops in latter. Served it with fresh bread. I love the sauce the forms in the bottom of the pan.  -  26 Jul 2010  (Review from Allrecipes UK & Ireland)


    Really nice, I didn't have any french mustard so used mayonnaise instead.  -  02 Mar 2016  (Review from Allrecipes UK & Ireland)
