How to cook lamb chops in a slow cooker or crock-pot

Slow cooked lamb chops are absolutely delicious. Would you like to know how to make lamb chops in the slow cooker? When you ponder how to make lamb chops in the slow cooker or crock-pot, you might want to do it right away and enjoy the tasty meal. It is not difficult at all and buying raw lamb meat on special at the grocery store can be economical as well. With a variety of spice powders on hand in your pantry, you can cook delicious lamb chops very simply.

It seems that lately all my recipes are for the slow cooker. I can't get enough of the appliance. The meat is so much more tender than when it is prepared in other ways. This recipe for lamb chops in the slow cooker is simple.:

  • Rinse and marinate lamb chops in 1 teaspoon each of the following spices:
  • Old Bay seasoning
  • black pepper
  • salt
  • oregano
  • garlic
  • paprika
  • ginger
  1. Place the lamb chops in the slow cooker with enough water to cover. As with the slow cooker recipe for turkey wings, place the slow cooker on high for the first two hours and on low for an additional six hours.
  2. As with the slow cooker recipe for the Caribbean style goat meat, I would add uncooked rice to the cooker during the last hour or 1/2hr of cooking time. This time, you can use some plain jasmine rice and add turmeric for coloring. Jasmine rice is a delicious type of rice. You can of course change things up to suit your needs however. Cooking with brown rice instead of white rice might have a healthful benefit for you for example.
  3. At the end of the final 1/2 hr, you can serve up the lamb with yellow rice into plates. Because they have become so tender during the hours of cooking time, you will find that the lamb chops are no longer whole but the meat is rather shredded within the rice. This one pot meat and rice dish is truly tasty and convenient indeed.

Here are some photos of the lamb in the slow cooker and the final presentation of lamb with yellow rice.

Enjoy your meal!

How to stop crying when chopping onions

Incorporating fresh herbs and seasonings such as onions, basil and garlic cloves is an added plus. As I edit this hub on HubPages, in general, I currently use a lot more fresh as opposed to powdered ingredients when I am cooking.

I've even looked for the best ideas for how to stop crying when chopping onions!

  • Some people say to light a candle nearby when you are chopping the onions on a cutting board.
  • Some say that cold onions from the refrigerator will cause you to tear up less than a room temperature onion would.
  • Some folks say to just throw on a pair of goggles then I entertain the idea of buying some goggles just for that purpose.

When I do add onions to a slow cooked meat dish, I caramelize the onions on the stove top first. The smell of caramelized onions cooking up is wonderful. Once caramelized, I add the onions to the slow cooking meat after the meat is fully cooked, in the last stages of heating, maybe just the last fifteen minutes or so.

While I now find it ideal to use fresh ingredients for flavoring most meat dishs, I still leave the particular recipe for slow cooked lamb chops itself above unedited. I enjoy the results of this recipe when duplicated. Old Bay seasoning is for example a very tasty seasoning to use.
