Lamb Stew

We have been experiencing such cold days that it is hard to believe that it is spring.  It has been even more of a shock to the system, as we had one day where it reached 23 C last week - the day that we went to the Shakespeare exhibition.

Anyway, it has definitely been stew/casserole weather, so I took the opportunity to try this recipe for lamb stew and dumplings.  It was very easy and the result was a warming, tasty dish.

This recipe was taken from The Complete Slow Cooker by Sara Lewis, which I bought quite a while ago.  I had not had a lot of time to experiment with different recipes, so now that I have more time, I am trying to be a little more adventurous and make some new dishes.  


  1. DELICIOUS!! Lovely with a stew on a chilly day--especially a lamb stew! I have that cook book and it's one of my go-to's for using my slow cooker. It has been a VERY chilly spring here so far too, it's lucky a day we get to 10 C most days, we don't! So it's been wintry fare here still too. Happy Days ((HUGS))

  2. Roll on spring! I optimistically washed my winter coat weeks ago, but I've been wearing it ever since....it would be nice to be able to eat something a little more seasonal, but for now, I'm continuing to cook stews.
