I made this Sunday night and it was amazing. The recipe is so versatile you can add almost anything to it. I kept it simple and only added mushrooms and an extra 1/2 glass of red wine 🙂 The sauce I will add to pasta for dinner tonight and add some cooked chicken for a quick and easy meal. One very happy little camper.

Made this tonight, oh my gosh AHHHMAZING! My husband said it is the best meal I have ever cooked, which is a huge compliment coming from him as he is the chef in the family! I doubled the recipe to get loads of sauce but it really wasn’t necessary, ill freeze the rest of it for a bolagnaise sauce!

I made this today with 1.6kg leg of lamb. I only used 4tbsp of gravy powder. Once I took the lamb out I added 2 more tablespoons of gravy powder to the liquid and blitzed it. Turned the SC onto warm and left it while waiting 10mins for the lamb to settle before serving. Absolutely amazing. Thank you to whoever shared this recipe.

I loved it, very flavoursome and lovely thick sauce. I used 5 tablespoons of gravy powder, but next time I will try 4. The flavour can be varied depending on the wine you use; I had a beautiful Shiraz and will try other varieties in the future. I had a half leg of lamb and chopped up the leftovers and added that to the remaining sauce to freeze for future meals ☺
