Method

To Slow Cook

1

Turn the slow cooker on to pre-warm while gathering and preparing the ingredients.

2

If wishing to brown the ingredients: brown the lamb chops in a dash of oil in a hot frying pan. Do not crowd the pan, as the lamb chops will stew.

3

Layer half the potato slices evenly over the base of the pot.

4

Layer the lamb, carrots, onions and celery on top of the potatoes.

5

Sprinkle over the mixed dried herbs.

6

Layer the remaining potato slices on top ensuring that the top layer is nicely arranged.

7

Season liberally with salt and pepper.

8

Dissolve the stock in water and pour over the ingredients in crockpot. Place a piece of baking paper on top. This will prevent the potatoes from discolouring.

9

Cover with the lid.

10

Cook on low for 7-8 hours or high for 4-5 hours or until the meat and vegetables are tender.
