Things You'll Need

  • Optional vegetables
  • Many people say they like to eat lamb but never make it at home. Why? Lamb doesn't taste good unless it is very tender, flavorful and juicy. There are a couple of simple keys to cooking lamb that will give you these results everytime. If you follow these simple steps, it doesn't matter what cut of lamb you prefer, it will turn out delicous.

  • The first thing to remember is you must cook lamb in a generous amount of flavorful concentrated liquid and not just water. Canned potato soup is a favorite, but you could use any cream soup. It should be a very thick chunky soup.

  • Put the lamb into either a big soup pot on the stove, a casserole dish in the oven or a slow cooker. This is important for the next step. Cover the lamb with the soup (the number of cans depends on how much meat you are cooking), then add some water. Use 1 cup of water per can of soup. The key is to cover the meet by at least 2 to 3 inches with liquid if possible. Then you can add veggies and spices.

  • It's time for some long and slow cooking. Lamb tastes best when cooked for a very long time at a very low heat. You will get the most favorable and tender lamb this way. For stovetop cooking, bring mixture to a boil, turn down to low and simmer covered for 4 to 6 hours but watch your liquid level; add water if it gets low. For oven cooking, cover the dish with lid or foil cook on 275 to 300 degrees for 4 to 6 hours. Check at 3 hours for liquid level and tenderness. For slow cooker, start on high until hot and bubbly, then turn to low for 4 to 6 hours. Again, watch the liquid level.

  • When this dish is done, you will have lamb that falls apart with a fork and it will be flavorful and juicy. You can serve it with pasta, rice or just a crusty bread. It is rich and goes great with a red wine. Plus, you can make great sandwiches with the leftovers. Keep these tips handy for your next dinner party and you will get rave reviews.
