My mother-in-law bought us a slow cooker for Christmas and we have used it so much since then. So far we have only used it for traditional stews but I’m planning on experimenting with some other recipes soon. I really want to try my One Pot Chilli recipe in there and see how that works.

I just love how easy slow cooker stews are! Just chop up your meat and veg, chuck them in the pot, switch it on and that’s it. Very little prep, very few pots but a delicious and hearty meal.

Lamb and Mint are meant to be together. The flavours compliment each other perfectly which is why I added mint sauce to this recipe. I’ve also used gravy granules to thicken my Slow Cooker Minted Lamb Stew as I prefer to have a gravy more brown in colour. Plus the gravy granules season as well as thicken. If you prefer to use flour to thicken the stew just mix 3-4 tablespoons of plain flour of cornflour with a little water and then stir it into the stew. If you do use flour you may need a little extra seasoning.

I added my peas at the beginning to make things easier but if you prefer to add them later so they stay firmer and greener just add them an hour before serving.
