Original recipe makes 4 to 6 servings Change Servings


  1. Cut lamb into 2 inch cubes, removing any fat. Reserve any trimmings for browning meat.
  2. Combine flour, paprika and onion powder and add to meat and toss until coated.
  3. Heat lamb fat trimmings in a large skillet to render fat. Add oil, if needed, to measure 2 tablespoons and brown meat well.
  4. Meanwhile, combine Kahlua, water, vinegar, garlic, salt, rosemary and pepper. When meat is browned, discard any fat remaining in skillet. Add Kahlua mixture to meat. Bring to boil, cover and turn heat low. Simmer 1 1/2 to 1 3/4 hours, or until meat is tender. Cut mushrooms in halves and add to the skillet in last 5 minutes as meat cooks.
  5. Remove lamb and mushrooms to heated serving platter. Skim off any excess fat from sauce. Pour over the lamb, or serve on the side. Garnish with sliced green onion and lemon wedges. Serve with rice, if desired.

I found this pretty scrumpy. Even my fiance who isn't a fan of lamb enoyed this. The meat was super tender, and the combination of the flavours of the mushrooms with the kahlua was great. I had run out of paprika but found that cajun seasoning did the trick. The only change I would make is that the sauce was a bit runny, so I would add a thickening mix once I remove the meat and mushrooms next time around.

This was awesome! Easy to prepare and I had all the ingredients on hand which is always a bonus. I skipped the browning step (and therefore the flour). Tossed everything but the mushrooms in a slow cooker and cooked it all afternoon. I added the mushrooms the last half hour. Kids (5, 7, 9) and husband loved it. Will absolutely make it again.

Really good, sauce was a little to sweet though.
