Why I Love This Recipe

This is a perfect Comfort meal for winter, and it has all the vegetables in one dish. I have made this often and is very popular by all. It has a real Australian Name to it. A Little bit of knowledge the word "Jumbuck" is the name they called sheep in the earlier Australian days.

The main meat used in this dish is lamb, but beef can also be used.

1 tablespoon oil
30 grams butter
1 KG lamb or Beef cut into cubes and rolled in seasoned flour.

3/4 teaspoon mixed herbs
1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
