Slow Cooker Boneless Lamb Shoulder with Carrots and Sweet Potatoes (Serves 5-7)
I’ve been monitoring the meat case in grocery stores I visit closely for more than a year now. The selection of lamb is limited and I only recently found boneless lamb shoulder for sale. I prepared it in the slow cooker and liked it a lot. I hope I can find lamb shoulder again soon.
Prep time: 5-10 minutes
Cook time: 8 hours
2.25 pounds boneless lamb shoulder
2 sweet yellow onions
2 pounds baby cut carrots
1 large or 2 or 3 smaller sweet potatoes
Directions: Peel onions and cut into half-moon slices. Arrange onions on bottom of slow cooker. Season lamb generously on all sides with salt and garlic powder and arrange on top of onions. Wash sweet potato, cut into bite-size pieces, and arrange pieces around lamb. Arrange carrots around lamb. Dust carrots generously with cumin and lightly with salt and garlic powder. Pour in water as required to submerge about 75 percent of the meat. Place cover on slow cooker. Set temperature to slow cook (200 degrees on my unit) and time to 8 hours. That’s it!
Notes: My slow cooker is a Cuisinart Multi Cooker that I picked up at Williams-Sonoma because my local store had one in stock and I wanted to start cooking right away. Amazon sells the Cuisinart, but seems to be out of stock frequently. The Breville Stainless-Steel 7-Quart Slow Cooker with EasySear Insert on display in my Store is similar. Check them out by clicking on the Store link in the upper right hand corner of this site. The Cuisinart has a see-through top and the Breville has a stainless steel top. I like being able to see inside without opening the lid, but the Breville sells for $75 less than the Cuisinart.
