  • the flavours are gorgeous and I just put it on a slow heat on the hob, as I don't have a slow cooker. - 4/15/11

  • This sounds excellent. But I am new to fennel. I am afraid I would add to much. How much did you add? And 1 lb serves 8 people? Is this correct? - 1/9/10

    I just put a few shakes of fennel out of the spice shaker -- sorry, I'm kind of a "by feel" cook, so I don't have a precise amount. I served 8 on a lb of lamb shanks. There's more veg than meat in this dish.
