Slow Cooked Lamb Stew Recipe

Our family loves an easy one pot meal. Something you can cook with limited effort, that takes minimal preparation and can be ready when we are. With a really busy routine, work, school and so much else it’s great to find a meal that we dish up whenever.

Lamb Stew is one of those things that we cook often, in the oven or in the slow cooker depending on what we’re doing that day. It’s a meal I have loved since my own childhood and now that I have my own family it’s something I cook regularly – especially over the autumn and winter.

Lamb stew is up there with my favourite meals as it reminds me of my childhood – where my parents would cook a huge batch of Lancashire stew in a pressure cooker. The pressure cooking meant it was ready in no time and we’d eat it for a few days and each day they would just throw in more potatoes, veg and stock.

This one pot lamb stew is such simple, hearty and warming meal and one that can last such a long time, full of flavour and easily bulked up to feed more people when needed. This is perfect for sharing and such a great comfort food.

The lamb stew meat always falls off the bone and it’s a great alternative to a beef stew. This can also easily be made into a slow cooker lamb stew by cooking on low for 8-10 hours in the crock pot, adding the flour an hour before you are ready to serve. I’m sure it would work in an Instant Pot too.

Although we use lamb shoulder for this recipe any lamb will work well – steaks, lamb chops or any other cut of meat that you have in the kitchen. It will always turn out delicious! You can even add extras in if you feel like it – pearl barley, bay leaves, red wine… it’s such a versatile recipe that you can switch up easily.

  • Oh no, yet again I’m left regretting the fact that I still haven’t got around to getting a slow cooker… That looks fab, how great to be able to serve whenever you’re ready.
