"I have no idea where this recipe came from, but I found written in an old book years ago. I thought I would look it up before posting, and I have just noticed that nearly exact same recipe on a T.A.F.E. (N.S.W.) site. I have not cooked lamb for many, many years, but I think this may have been one of those basic down to earth recipes used years ago. Basic is usually good.... and I think this may have been an original recipe used without all the .... excuse me for saying this "Fluff and Stuff""
