Slow Cooked Lamb Stew with Dumplings

Updated: Jun 19, 2022

This dish is perfect for the whole family.

We have included directions for both oven and slow cooker methods - we tend to use our slow cooker on the 'auto' mode for a total of 6-8 hours. The beauty of a slow cooker is the ability to be loose with timings and the flexibility this affords.

We hope you enjoy it - be sure to send us your comments & photos on our Facebook here!
