An all in One dish, this recipe will definitely WOW your family and guests.
This recipe has always been my family favourite, and can be used with any meat as stated in the Notes section in the recipe below.
It may seem to be a lengthy process, but the end product, is a wonderful, moist and hearty meal, and is so worth the effort?
Do Pardon my picture quality though (Used my Samsung S4), as I’m visiting my parents in Durban, South Africa, and tagging along my Canon Camera was the furthest from my mind ?
I do hope you give this recipe a shot in your kitchen, and looking forward to all your feedback.
