Lamb cacciatore

Oh this stuff is good good good!  And it's so simple.  You can add more vegetables if you'd like, or serve the vegetables on the side.  If you can brown the lamb before placing it in your crock pot, that would be best, or else consider using a dutch oven instead with a low heat.

Lamb Cacciatore

Olive oil
2 lbs of lamb (on the bone is fine)

1/2 c dry red wine
2 cans (15 oz) diced tomatoes
2 cloves of garlic, minced
Basil, oregano, parsley

Brown the lamb lightly in either a dutch oven or in a skillet (if planning on cooking in a crock pot).  Use the wine to deglaze the pan.  Add the other ingredients and simmer (or cook on low) for 2 hours.  Add more liquid if needed.  Turn lamb over after one hour.

This sounds wonderful ... and wonderfully easy.

I'm printing the recipe out.

We love lamb but it's hard to find where we live, so it's always a treat for us.
