Braised Moroccan Lamb

A beautiful winter warmer, or take the braised lamb and use it a salad or wraps for a lighter meal. Let the slow cooker work its magic with this super simple and delicious meal.

If theres only two (or one) of you, Try having the lamb with broth one night, a lamb and spring pea risotto the next evening and still have enough meat for a fresh lamb salad lunch.

Frozen (then thawed) lamb shoulder works just fine as a more economical option.

Recipe Notes

Try using Whatevz salt instead of Man grind if you are a breast feeding mumma - the pulses, spices and magic of Whatevz are a great milk booster.
