Lamb with Greek Style Gravy
- Yield: 8 1x
This Slow Cooker Lamb with Greek Style Gravy takes a little prep, but is well worth the wait! For a gluten-free, Whole30 compliant option, serve with roasted potatoes or cauliflower rice. (Our personal favorite is in a bowl with sweet potatoes and farro.)
Slow-Cooker Lamb Ingredients:
- 1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
- 3 pounds leg of lamb or lamb roast
- 1 large yellow onion, chopped
- 1 & 1/2 tablespoons garlic, minced
- 2 tablespoons lemon juice (approximately 2 lemons)
- 1/2 teaspoon Himalayan pink salt
- 1/2 teaspoon pepper
- 2 teaspoons paprika
- 2 teaspoons garlic powder
- 2 teaspoons dried oregano
- 6 sprigs fresh thyme
- 3 sprigs fresh rosemary
- 2 dried bay leaves
- 1 cup chicken broth
Optional Sides to Meal:
- Sweet Potato Home Fries (recipe link above)
- green beans (bake with EVOO and a little salt)
- Turn slow cooker on low heat.
- Heat a large skillet to medium-high heat. Add 1/2 tablespoon EVOO and brown lamb on all sides. (Approximately 1-minute per side.) Once lamb is browned, remove and place in slow cooker.
- Using the same pan, add remaining EVOO. Sauté onion and garlic until translucent. Remove from stove and add to slow cooker.
- Add remaining lamb ingredients to slow cooker and cook on low for 8-10 hours. Remove lamb from slow cooker, allow to rest on cutting board for 5 minutes and slice against the grain into half-inch slices.
- Use an immersion blender to puree remaining sauce directly in your slow cooker until it becomes a smooth gravy. (If you don’t have an immersion blender you can ladle semi-cooled batches into your blender and then pour each batch into a separate pot before combining and reheating.)
- Add lamb back to slow cooker and mix to combine with sauce. Serve with whatever sides you desire.
Gluten-free: To make this meal gluten-free, substitute farro with whole grain rice.
