Cooks Tips

Variations: - Use blackcurrant or redcurrant jelly in place of port wine jelly. - Use sliced cross-cut beef blade steaks in place of lamb shoulder chops. - In place of flour, use a favourite packet of soup mix, like onion, or use instant gravy powder. - Use red onions or leeks in place of onions, or add more vegetables like sliced carrots, aprsnips, swedes and so on.
