This delicious Slow Cooker Lamb Stew is the perfect comfort food for cold and dreary days. Tender chunks of lamb cooked with vegetables, capers and olives make this the perfect one-pot lamb stew recipe.
Heat the oil in a casserole dish or in your slow cooker if it allows for searing. Add the onion, olives and capers.
Add the diced lamb, anchovy, garlic and tomato paste and stir to combine. Cook for about 5 minutes until the lamb colours a little and onion has softened.
Transfer to the slow cooker. Add the chopped tomatoes, potatoes or swede, aubergine and stock. Stir in seasoning and bay leaves. Cover and cook on low for 8-10 hours, stirring halfway through if you can remember.
Discard the bay leaves, taste and check the seasoning. Garnish with plenty of chopped parsley and lemon zest and serve with my crusty bread and a bold red wine.
