My Mother used to make a dish very similar to this one. We used bottled stuffed green olives and some tomato paste other than that it was about the same. Very tasty.

Thanks for the pic. My mouth is watering and I don't even think I like lamb.

I know you don't like lamb Pac. (And truly, these are just small). They are going to be lost in the crock pot!) But they are going to be sharing with potatoes..... and tomatoes...(toMAYtoes) for a very long time. I am sure they will be married by the time I sprinkle them with fresh lemon zest and parsley. (The bridesmaids will be Greek Salad and Tzatziki)

I can assure you there will be olives Aunt Bea. (If I haven't finished them off before tomorrow that is!)

Pac,

If you are not sure about lamb start out with some souvlaki on the grill.

We have a small Greek restaurant in town that has it on the breakfast menu with a couple of eggs some Greek style home fries and toasted pita bread.

Opa!

Lamb is by far my favorite meat. I've never had it in a slow cooker, though.

The best lamb I've ever had was on Easter two years ago. We actually rigged up an electric rotisserie and cooked an entire leg over a wood fire in our fire pit. It was outstanding.

If I remember right, the marinade we used was Greek and contained olive oil, lemon juice, oregano, and lots of garlic. It was really quite simple, but oh so delicious.

Well, it all went swimmingly well. The meat was literally falling off the bone and most of the fat had rendered down, so what was left was very tender lamb. The other good news is that I finally bought another bag of Desiree potatoes and these ones didn't have the black spots inside.

I don't know why I have made so little use of my slow cooker for all this time. It's a marvellous way of cooking.
