This makes a nice pot roast but not Scouse. Scouse is meant to be like a stew, the potato is meant to break down and act like a thinkening agent to make the gravy thick. This is done on the stove/in a slow cooker with way more liquid than this recipe required. At least 4-6 times the amount. Also, you only use lamb or beef not both. This is meant to be a cheap family meal.
