    Anyone have any good slow cooker recipe ideas for stewing lamb?

    I've got a couple of round lamb stewing joints and was thinking of just putting some onions, sliced potatoes and herbs (thyme + parsley) into the bottom of the pot, then add the lamb as is from defrosted, and then some cooking bacon on the sides, topped with chicken stock and some seasoning.

    I'm just wondering if it'll be a thick enough consistency when it's done. Maybe some chopped tomatoes as well, or think that'll make it too weird?

    Cornflour usually works for me.

    Sounds delicious by the way. Enjoy!

    I am going with Liver, carrots, broccoli, Brussels sprouts and potatoes. Simple fare.

    I'm hoping so!

    I've not have liver for ages. Now I want liver!

    I've done this lamb dish before I few months ago, but I can't for the life of me remember whether I padded out the mixture to make it more solid. I'm pretty sure I didn't.

    Anyway, it's pretty wet at the moment, but its only been cooking for 3 hours, so I'll give it a another 3-4 and see how it goes

    Few hours in -

    That looks like someone was sick into a pan of diarrhea.

    It always looks like that. Its only been on for a couple of hours. Needs another 3-4 hours to go. Can always thicken the sauce on the pan I guess if its a watery mess

    The potatoes should disintegrate soon enough which should help thicken things up. Did you use red or white spuds?

    White spuds. Ive got some cornflour too if necessary and the pan if I need it. Thing is, it always looks like this and towards the end it just comes together. It'll be fine!

    I do love my slow cooker.

    Two all-time faves = brisket of beef and a whole chicken:)

    Yeah, should do. White spuds go floury when they're overcooked, which in this case is exactly what you want.

    I wouldn've used chopped spuds rather than sliced ones, so you've still got some nicely cooked potatoe in the middle when the outside has fallen off and thickened the stoo. So you might lose your potatoes, but it should taste okay.

    Red would be better this time of year? Might have to get a crockpot. Liver casserole sounds lovely.

    They are chopped. I was thinking of doing boulangiee potatoes, however you fucking spell it, but just chopped them in the end. I'm reckoning theherb mix of parsley and thyme and some salt and pepper will work better this time. Last time I put some smoked paprika in and while nice, is a bit overpowering

    You honestly can't go wrong with a slow cooker. They're fucking ace and make any meat taste absolutely fantastic

    I tend to go for swede rather than potatoes. Baked potato is a favorite this time of year for me, if I can find big enough red ones.

    I'm making slow cooked beef rendang curry tonight, it smells absolutely wonderful so far. Plus I'm having a go at making an indonesian style warm chicken salad for the starter. Desert is tirimsu from Morrisons. All in all, fucking yay. \o/
