  1. Brian,1- you can marinate the mutton overnight. 2- You are only suppose to fill the pan with water, not the baking dish. Just place a steal bowl upside down in a large pan and fill the pan with water, making sure the water level is just below the top surface of steal bowl. 3- You can call it steamed roast. If you want to bake it, just cover the dish with foil and bake it in oven. 4- Heat proof dish can be of pyrex, steal or non-stick. 5- Every meat take its own cooking time. You will have to check the meat if its tender enough for you. It will take approximately 2 - 3 hours. Mutton is goat's meat.
