    Just made this with lamb chops, plus new potatoes minus the stock and it was fantastic. Will probably put a small amount of stock in next time, say 150ml.

    This is delicious, we have only had our slow cooker for two weeks and have cooked this three times!

    Let me start by saying I am not a big fan of red meat, but feel I should cook more for the whole family, and this seemed like an easy 'hands off' type of meal. (I was a vegetarian for 15 years, so a little bit unconfident about cooking meat, other than chicken!) Anyway it really was a doddle to cook, the easiest meal I have ever prepared with really delicious results. My partner and 5 y/o LOVED it, myself and my 2 1/2 y/o enjoyed it, but I probably wouldn't make it again with lamb, since neither of us were too keen on the taste. Having said that I will try it with chicken since the sauce was delicious. It was lovely having the cooking smells filling the house all day too :-)

    Made this last night when we had friends round for dinner - everybody loved it including the two 3 year olds.

    After I strain the toms and onions - do I add them to the lamb again? Or discard? Sorry for the dim question, I am clueless in the kitchen!!

    Delicious and really easy to make. I am definately making this again.

    Made this for dinner this evening, and it led to DH wondering if he could in fact eat an entire leg of lamb himself. He tried, believe me!!

    A triumph - absolute plate-clearer from all, adults and kids, even with ss claiming to not like the white cheese. I forgot it was a slow cooker recipe so did in the oven for about 2 1/2 and it was still great.

    I made this yesterday but done as Carmenere said and bunged it all in a casserole dish and cooked for 4 1/2 hrs, it was absolutely delicious the kids didnt leave a morsel on their plates will definately be making it again.

    I am pretty sure that this recipe would work well if you placed all the ingredients in a covered casserole dish in the oven (instead of a slow cooker) on a low heat for as long as you can. 4 hours would probably be enough but be sure it doesn't dry out.
