Chef Bob our resident chef at Kanpei Restaurant has managed to put together a nice Asian dish for everyone to try at home. It is very easy to make as it is mostly, after adding all the ingredients, just a slow simmering process. When the lamb is ready you can tell as it should be easily separated using a spoon and will melt in your mouth with little chewing needed.

Well done chef Bob.

Happy Cooking!
