Fiesta Friday slow cooked lamb oh yum! Fiesta Friday #36

Fiesta Friday slow cooked lamb oh yum!

Slow cooked lamb with potatoes and veggies

serves 6 (I’d say 4) 8 hours on low for the slow cooker


  • 1kg shoulder of lamb – bone in
  • 3tbsp chopped rosemary – think I used 1 1/2 rosemary and
  • 1 1/2 thyme
  • 2 onions quartered
  • 1 head of garlic cut in half horizontally
  • 2 tomatoes halved
  • 6 waxy potatoes quartered – or as many as you can fit in
  • I added chopped carrots too
  • 250ml chicken stock
  • 100ml olive oil
  • seasoning It really is quite an adaptable recipe – just bung in what you’ve got in the veggie tray!


    • Method Rub the lamb all over with the salt and pepper
    • Put the onions, garlic, tomatoes and potatoes into the bottom of the slow cooker and rest the lamb shoulder on top.
    • Pour over the stock and olive oil and cook for 8 hours on low
    • Serve with pitta bread to soak up juices or garlic bread

I have to say this is one of the easiest recipes to date I have had to do and actually really one of the best lamb recipes I have had too.  The meat literally falls off the bone and infused with the slow cooking is sooooo tasty.

One of my oldest friends, Jacqueline cooked this for me when I went to visit her this Summer having not seen her for two years it was amazing to catch up and her version tasted much better than mine though I followed it to the t so to speak but then she is an amazing cook!  Its the midas touch when putting food together, some have it, some don’t, I wing it lol! x

So let’s party for Fiesta Friday #36 woohoo 36 parties and going strong!

Happy Friday and Happy Weekend, Justine x

    You are right about the Midas touch Justine. It’s with everybody. The taste of your dish when you make it can never be the same even if I copy your recipe to the T. Happens all the time. The way my mom in law makes mutton stew or my mom makes fish curry , I can never replicate with the same taste no matter how many times I try. I always say it is ‘ the hand’ that matters.

    Another delicious lamb recipe – I am going to have to try a roast. I usually use lamb chops with a mint or juniper sauce. Looks yummy Justine 🙂

    Hi Justine, lovely to see you at this weeks FF party 🙂 I always find it difficult to comment on meat based dishes but I can wholly appreciate the great flavour this dish must have 🙂

    This recipe sounds so good–I bet it would work with beef, too!

    How funny that we both did lamb shoulder this week, Justine – it must be something in the air!! A chill in the evenings perhaps…I really must use my slow cooker a bit more – it is such a great way to cook meat so that it falls off the bone. Yours looks absolutely delicious!! Chuck in a bit of wine next time and if you are doing beef, add a tablespoon of redcurrant jelly or the like…xx Thank you for bringing this to the party – Happy Fiesta Friday!!

    I like this Justine. Loving the flavors and slow cooking would render the meat so moist too!
