Slow-cooker Lamb Stew

Print

This recipe combines pretty much everything I love in the world of food: lamb, stews and the Mediterranean kitchen. I also love my slow-cooker very much, and this recipe is perfect for it. I make it whenever I want something warming and hearty: Cooking with a slow-cooker always leaves the meat super tender.

Further Food Nutritionist Commentary:

‘Tis the season for slow-cookers. There is nothing better than a hearty stew with tender meat and colorful vegetables, especially on a cool autumn day. Slow cookers are great time-saving kitchen gadgets. With a prep time of only 4-6 minutes, this recipe cannot get any easier. Lamb is a tasty and nutritious protein option. A 4-ounce serving of lamb offers an excellent source of vitamin b12, which is important for red blood cell production and nerve function. It is also a good source of niacin, zinc, iron and copper. On the flip side, lamb is high in saturated fat, about 10 grams in a 4-ounce serving. Being mindful of portions can help you stay within your calorie and saturated fat limits.
