Recipe Tips

  • While I highly recommend that you brown the lamb you can skip this step if you don’t have the time. Just add the meat straight into the slow cooker if you decide against browning the meat.
  • If you have a piece of meat that is smaller than two kilograms, then you might want to consider reducing the cooking time by a couple of hours.
  • Not adding the vegetables is a viable option, but you do miss out on all the flavor they add to the recipe.
  • You can make a delicious gravy using the leftover fluids in the slow cooker. Transfer the liquid to a pot and bring to the boil. Mix two tablespoons of water and cornstarch until it's like a paste. In the pot, stir in the cornstarch mixture and wait until it's nice and thick.
