  3. Add the beef stock and stir well.
  4. Gently place the lamb shoulder into the pot, ensuring that it is just covered by the liquid. Add extra beef stock or water until the lamb is covered.
  5. Bring to a boil and secure the lid onto the pressure cooker. Turn the dial to the highest pressure setting and allow it to pressurize.
  6. Once your cooker starts to release steam, drop the heat to low and leave to cook for 2 hours or 30 minutes per pound.
  7. After 2 hours, turn off the heat and leave to release pressure for 20 minutes.

  9. Remove the lid of the pressure cooker and gently remove the piece of lamb shoulder. We recommend using a spider tool or 2 sets of tongs.
  10. Turn the pressure cooker back onto medium heat and allow to liquid to simmer, and reduce by ¼.
  11. While the liquid is reducing, use tongs to pull the lamb meat off the bone and roughly chop it into bite-sized chunks.

  13. Serve topped with two tablespoons of Sour Cream and one tablespoon of grated Parmesan cheese, and enjoy!

This lamb stew is easy and affordable to make in large batches, especially if you have a large pressure or slow cooker. Refrigerate for up to a week or freeze for two months.

How To Make Lamb Stew In The Slow Cooker

Copy all the instructions above except place in a slow cooker for 7 hours on low.

You can cook on high for 5 hours. But I feel long and low gets better results in the slow cooker.

There is no real pressure involved in breaking up tough cuts in a slow cooker. So Seven hours on low is best to give the meat time to tenderize.
