Slow Cooked Lamb Rogan Josh #LivePeasant

With a busy week ahead I wanted to ensure I had some quick and easy meals on the planner and slow cooked recipes are so ideal for this. I can literally pop all of the ingredients into the pot in the morning, head out to meet friends/work/appointments and serve up a delicious meal in the evening. Minimal effort and amazing food - the perfect combo.

We really enjoyed the Slow Cooked Beef with Gnocchi I made just a few days ago so I decided to put another #LivePeasant recipe to the test. The Live Peasant campaign encourages you to boost your lamb and beef intake through slow cooked, hearty and rustic style meals that are often far more affordable and far more convenient for families. This time we opted for a dish featuring lamb as the protein and with a little more spice - Rogan Josh!  What I love about this is that it only takes a few minutes to prep and as the carbs and veg are all cooked in the slow cooker with the meat so I didn't need to worry about cooking extras or sides to accompany it, although there are some suggested below.


Slow Cooked Lamb Rogan Josh #LivePeasant


Ingredients
Preparation time: 10 minutes 
Cooking time: High 4-6 hours or low 8-10 hours

  • 450g/1lb lean lamb shoulder or leg cubes, cut into 2.5cm/1 inch cubes
  • 2 medium onions, peeled and chopped OR 1 x 500g pack prepared diced onions
  • 1 garlic clove or 5ml/1tsp garlic purée
  • 1 x 420g (approx.) jar prepared Rogan Josh sauce
  • 200ml/7 fl oz good, hot lamb stock
  • 6 small new potatoes, quartered

Method

  • Put all the ingredients, except the yoghurt and coriander, in a large slow cooker.
  • Turn the slow cooker on HIGH for 4-6 hours or LOW for 8-10 hours, or according to your manufacturers’ handbook.

We like to buy produce that has a quality mark when we can, like the Red Tractor logo, to ensure the food is farm assured.

This was such a tasty meal and there were clear bowls all around, a sign of success. The Mr was eager to take the leftovers to work the following day where I'm sure the aroma captivated his colleagues too - it smells heavenly while simmering away all day in the kitchen.

  4. That looks and sounds amazing. You can't get decent lamb here usually, but I will make my mum dig her slow cooker out when I am next home! :D

  5. Slow cooking cheap joints is definitely one of my favourite kind of dinners, the knowledge it didn't cost much and usually having leftovers for next days lunch. Lamb shoulder is one of my favourites, the taste and flavour is great and this sounds lovely.

  6. I love slow cooking, however, I am not a fan of jars as they contain so much sugar and salt. This looks delicious though
