Have just enjoyed this in the garden on a lovely summer Sunday evening! I couldn't quite see how the gravy and salad would work, but believe it does!!

Great when you want a sit down meal, but the sun is shining outside. Loved the gravy and fresh salad to go with.

This is lovely for a summer roast. We did it with potatoes and salad. The 'gravy' is pale and thin in consistency so it was really nice drizzled over the salad leaves.

The honey and mustard in the gravy made a lovely change and added a light, summery feel to Sunday lunch which we ate outside. Will definately make again.
