Instructions for Slow-cooked Greek-style lamb and potatoes

1. First, season your lamb chunks with salt, pepper, oregano, and rosemary. Make sure every piece is well coated.
2. Heat up the olive oil in a large, oven-safe pot over medium heat. Add your lamb chunks and brown them on all sides. This should take about 5-7 minutes. Once browned, remove the lamb from the pot and set aside.
3. In the same pot, add your chopped onions and minced garlic. Cook until they become translucent, usually around 5 minutes.
4. Next, add the potatoes into the pot, stirring them around with the onions and garlic.
5. Place the lamb back into the pot, nestling it amongst the potatoes.
6. Pour in the vegetable stock and lemon juice, then cover the pot.
7. Preheat your oven to 325 degrees Fahrenheit (about 165 degrees Celsius). Once heated, place your pot inside and let it slow-cook for about 3 hours.
8. After 3 hours, take the pot out of the oven. The lamb should be tender and the potatoes cooked through.


1. For added flavor, consider marinating the lamb in the spices overnight.
2. Make sure to stir occasionally during the slow-cooking process to ensure even cooking.
3. You can also add some other Mediterranean herbs like thyme or basil for an extra burst of flavor.
