Lamb Stew is one of our favorite cool-weather meals. There’s truly nothing better than a warm, hearty stew on a cold day! Loaded with flavor, lamb stew is also packed with nutrition as well. High in protein and phytonutrients from the veggies, this recipe is an easy way to prep a nourishing meal for the whole family! Once made, we love to enjoy leftovers for quick, nutritious meals for days to come.

How to Make Lamb Stew in an Instant Pot

This recipe was created to be made in an Instant Pot for a super quick and easy, one-dish meal. No stovetop or oven required! Simply throw it all in the Instant Pot, set for 50 minutes on high, and enjoy a steaming hot stew in less than an hour. While I normally choose the Instant Pot for speed, this recipe can absolutely be made using a slow cooker instead! Instead of 50 minutes on high heat, set your timer for 3-4 hours on high heat, or 7-8 hours on low heat depending on your slow cooker.

Making Lamb Stew is easy, and as mentioned previously, requires only one dish! This recipe calls for only 8 ingredients and just a few minutes of hands-on time.

Lamb Stew Instant Pot FAQ

How does lamb taste in comparison to beef?

While beef is more commonly consumed than lamb in America, they can be interchangeable in most recipes! Beef has a savory, mildly sweet flavor, while lamb is similar, except with a gamier, earthier flavor.

Can this be made in a slow cooker?

Yes! While this recipe was made for the Instant Pot, it can easily be made in the slow cooker instead. On a low setting, this recipe should take 7-8 hours, and on a high setting, 3-4 hours depending on your slow cooker. Add more broth as needed, and always keep an eye out as machines vary!

Why celeriac instead of potatoes?

Here at Clean Cuisine, we have no problem with potatoes, and actually believe them to be very healthy! However, we know that potatoes can be problematic for some. Celeriac is a great alternative for those needing to avoid potatoes, and is very similar in texture!

Is pasture-raised lamb important?

We always prioritize pasture raised lamb when possible. Pasture raised lamb are allowed to freely roam pastures, eating grass like they’re meant to!

Can I use grass-fed beef instead?

You can absolutely substitute pasture-raised lamb for grass-fed beef in this recipe!
