Slow Cooked Lamb Stew

The Blessed Barrenness
A rich and tender lamb stew to satisfy the whole family.
Prep Time 10 mins
Servings 8


  • R100 lamb knuckles
  • 2 x Onions finely chopped
  • 1 x Clove or Garlic crushed
  • 1 Cup of dry red wine
  • 1 Cup of stock
  • 2 cans of Tomato Puree
  • Zoodles or baby marrow slices
  • Any other veg you'd like to add.


  • Add all your ingredients to your slow cooker, or an appropriate oven dish except the baby marrow.
  • Leave to cook for 6 hours.
  • Add the baby marrow and leave to cook for a further couple of hours.


Remember this needs to be cooked on a very low heat for as long as possible. The lamb is so tender it falls off the bones and you can just suck the marrow from the bones.
You can add any other veggies.
I served ours on a bed of buttery squash, because we follow LCHF. Other accompaniments include cauli rice, cauli mash or regular rice.
