      a good standby if your not too hurried

      Betty Smiths Products are found in most freezer shops and I found our's in Farm Foods.
      We decided to try her Lamb shanks in Rosemary and mint gravy. You get two in a pack which can be boiled in the bag or opened out and put into a roasting tin and cooked in the oven. You can also microwave them as well.

      We had our's roasted in the oven Cooked from frozen they take 1hour 35minutes to cook. on gas mark 4.

      The taste is quite sweet due to the mint and rosemary gravy, but the meat is very tender and although you do not get a lot on each shank there is enough for two people with vegetables.
      A tasty meal if a little sweet and slightly salty. But I would recommend you try them at least once before turning your nose up.
      I would probably buy them again as it doesn't take too long to cook and if done in the microwave it can cook in 22 minutes.
      boiled in the bag takes 1 hour 15 minutes.
      so the choice is yours as to how you cook them.

      Other ranges in Betty Smiths range are
      21 day old matured topside of beef
      meatball in gravy( which we are having tonight for tea.)
      beef stew
      cottage pie
      toad in the hole
      yorkshire puds
      roast potatoes
      croquette potatoes
      and chunky apple pie
      I could go on but you get the picture.
      There are quite a few different ones to try.

      The general concensus in our house was not bad! a bit sweet but could be bought again.
      I suppose that is as good as it gets for this product.
