I'm not a huge fan of lamb, but this is really good. I followed TRACYCOOK's slow cooker method and it was great! I also cut the recipe in half for our family of four. I did sear the lamb and cook the bacon beforehand as well. Meat just doesn't ever taste as flavorful when I throw it in the crockpot raw, no matter HOW long it cooks. Next time I'll add the carrots and potatoes in later, maybe around hour 6. They're just too mushy, and since I used purple potatoes, the color came right out of them, which means all those good antioxidants were sucked out from overcooking. Also added flour at the end, stirred in and cooked on high for about 30 minutes for it to thicken and it made a big difference. Looking forward to grabbing some bread for bread bowls and having this for dinner tonight. Overall a good recipe to have on-hand when we get all that lamb from our CSA meat share! May add Guinness next time instead of white wine as well. Mmmmm beer...
