Hi all :) Are the temps for conventional or fan forced oven? Thanks

I love this recipe and I've become well-known for it! The only thing I change is that I only use 1 cup balsamic - I find that's enough - and 3.5 cups of stock - cause you can never have enough! But otherwise, I go by the old saying: "if it ain't broke / don't fix it!"

Fantastic crowd pleaser. I used a French la Creuset pot and no after taste of balsamic. I also used a good balsamic around $15 for 1/2 litre. Next time I will seal the pot with a dough as there wasn't a great deal of liquid left behind for the gravy. Nice one Donna.

Love the separating of fat using ice. Brilliant idea.

This dish does give a funny aftertaste if cooked in a metal pan. I tried both and found it a lot better cooked in ceramic. I think that the acid in the vinegar reacts with the metal. My family love this dish! Christine

I made an interpretation of this last night in an electric slow cooker & it turned out really well!

I replaced 1kg shoulder with 2 large lamb loin chops I had in the freezer & I basically halved the all of the quantities. I used 4 sprigs of rosemary & 1/2 tablespoon minced garlic (jar). I replaced the chicken stock with beef stock & a good splash of red wine. I also added 2 red onions, 1 fresh bay leaf, 1 finely chopped carrot and 4 large brown mushrooms. I left it in the slow cooker for 6 hours. My partner & I loved it & I'll be adding it to my repertoire!

Yes falling off the bone, but meat cooked that long will always fall off the bone. Did not care for the vinegary aftertaste. Next time will use half the vinegar and 2/3 stock.

Yes falling off the bone, did not like the aftertaste. Next time will try half the vinegar and reduce the stock.'
