It’s tender, succulent and easy to make
This is one of my go to easy weekday dinner or weekend lunch roasts, I make it when I’m not looking to use many pots (but still want a delicious and filling meal), as I only use a pan to brown the meat and precook veggies. Then, I put it into a baking pan, cover with foil and let the oven do its magic. And in an hour or so dinner is ready. I serve it with either steamed veggies or bulgur wheat. I love it so much as the lamb becomes succulent and tender. I just can’t get enough of it, it’s like one of those meals you cook, but get pleasantly surprised by the end results. And I definitely thought I shouldn’t be the only enjoying this deliciousness, as the saying goes “sharing is caring”. Enjoy!
