@no1mmfan 5056255: Thanks for catching that! I have updated the recipe and it should read correctly now. Thanks! -- FaveHealthyRecipes Editor

There's a mistake in the recipe above. It states Lamb in the recipe under instructions. Lamb is not an ingredient in this recipe. It's suppose to be Veal not Lamb.
