So I read "Lamb is cheap" and dropped straight down here to read the comments😀. Wish I got paid what this writer obviously does! Looking at the recipe for a "special celebration meal" as times are hard and lamb is a treat. Maybe Good to Know should consider removing that comment from the start of this recipe so as not to offend the many who do not earn MegaBucks.


It must be an old recipe. Lamb used to be cheaper back then.

I made this for my evening meal and it was delicious, the only addition was a little tomato puree. Would make again and recommend, thanks.

Great recipe easy and quick very tasty! If your lamb was tough change your butcher!


Cooked this for dinner tonight, it was delicious, tender and every easy.I found the the lamb was a reasonable price. Highly recommend this recipe.

The whoopsie aisle is the reduced section, when it has to be sold that day or disposed of Babs. The meat goes from anything from 30% off to nearly 80% at the end of the day. Obviously not much gets to 80%.


What's a whoopsie aisle we don't have that where I live in Scotland,and what kind of lamb can you buy for £5 to feed four people ?

1 or 2 minutes parboiling is woefully short


Lamb is cheap when you buy it at the whoopsie aisle in your local Asda or Morrisons, I never buy expensive cuts full price, I got plenty for a family of four for £5 . Making this as I speak will feedback later.


Made the meal this evening. Extremely easy and very tasty. Well done for the recipe! Forget the comment 'lamb is cheap' because we all know it isn't but as a little treat to ourselves this meal fulfills the bill. Enjoy!

Left out tomatoes and used beef stock. Used rosemary oregano thyme bay leaf. Turned out fabulous!! Definitely will want to use this again!!


Try popping a spot of caviar on's even cheaper


The recipe went down very well here. I didn't feel like foraging for fresh herbs in the dark and rain, so only used dried rosemary, cut out the worcester sauce, made a bit of stock/gravy from the pan scrapings, added some soy sauce and a little red wine - plus the tomatoes, salt and pepper. I put the tomatoes on top of the steaks at the beginning of the oven cooking and they absorbed all the flavours, as well as keeping the meat from drying. Cooking in the oven for just over a half hour made the steaks much more tender than when I had previously grilled them.


My husband loves it reminds me of a Lancashire hotpot


Had neither lamb stock nor Worcestershire sauce so substituted with veg stock, a glug of port and a splash of soy sauce. Worked a treat. In fact, that's how I'll make it next time too.


Complete crap! Lamb is not cheap, and this receipe made me regret even using it. The lamb is not tender .

steve chef

in the oven now with the addition of a Tbspn of medeira red wine vinegar added to the jus' ....the jus' tastes and smells divine.


This is lovely, especially with the addition of a little red wine and some rosemary out of the garden!


I cooked this recipe last night and it is nice and simple but next time I will slow braise the meat over a few hours as this should make the meat more tender. The meat was not tender enough for my liking, using the method given.


"Lamb is cheap"? Does the copywriter buy her own food?


This is a great recipe! It's easy for people who get scared of the kitchen and sooo tasty, thank you!


Fabulous so tender. Lamb is not cheap so was very worried about how to cook it.
