Caribbean slow cooker lamb

Updated on August 19, 2013

Caribbean Lamb with only 15 minutes of prep time

Lamb is one of the most commonly used meat sources in the Caribbean. My take on a caribbean is classic takes only a small time to prepare. About 15 minutes

Now the first thing that you should know is that if you buy whole lamb legs at your local butcher or grocery butcher you can save money. You may save time by having them cut them into several smaller meat roast on each end, this will leave steaks for the middle sections.

One Secret For That Authentic Caribbean Flavor

The problem ingredient here is the tamarid concentrate. You might have to check several grocery stores or maybe just the one near you that has the best international section. I found it available near me, and I live in medium-size town in central Illinois

If you do not have it you can utilize a mixture of a tablespoon of lime juice and a teaspoon of Splenda. This will give the desired sweetness, but will be less authentically Caribbean tasting.

Caribbean Cookbook

This cookbook is great! The recipes are easy for anyone to make no matter their experience in the kitchen. The recipes are great at providing some of the best the aromas and curries. This cookbook is a great edition to anyone looking to expand their typical recipes and flavors.

  • Cook time: 8 hours
  • Ready in: 8 hours
  • Yields: 6


  • 2 to 3 pounds of leg of lamb
  • one half medium onion
  • chopped
  • one half teaspoon minced garlic or you can have one clove garlic
  • 1 teaspoon tamarind concentrate ( if you can't find it use my substitute described above)
  • 1 tablespoon spicy brown mustard
  • 1 teaspoon of hot sauce preferably Caribbean style
  • 1 cup canned diced tomatoes


  1. 1. place the lamb in slow cooker.
  2. 2. Stir together the onion, garlic, tamarind sauce, mustard, tomatoes, and hot sauce, and then pour over lamb.
  3. 3. Set the cooker on low, allow a good eight hours. The slower the better.
  4. 4. (Optional) Before serving you may reduce or thicken sauce if desired. To do so, just drain the meat of all sauce and simmer sauce to reduce water content. Then simply pour sauce over meat when it is the desired consistency.
