Slow Cooker Lamb Stew with Apricots
We saw the basis for this recipe at a 4-H presentation. We adapted it to our taste and love it. The coriander, cumin, cinnamon, allspice, clove, and dried apricot mixture really makes this lamb stew extra special.
Other dried fruit that could be used would be dried figs, chopped dates, raisins or plums. Your choice. You can use any stew meat you like: beef, lamb, deer, or goat. You can use 2 large sweet potatoes instead of regular potatoes, and honey or agave nectar instead of brown sugar.
We use no-salt-added spices, tomatoes, and low-sodium beef stock. The salt at the end is optional, but I choose not to use it.
The original recipe was cooked in a Dutch oven, but we chose to use a slow cooker.
