Slow cooker lamb and sweet potato curry stew. If you’re wanting to make something warm and delicious, try this winter slow cooker curry. It’s a stew made with pieces of juicy lamb and sweet potatoes. It’s perfect for using your slow-cooker and you will be glad you did!

I just love how little time it takes to prepare! All you do is soften the ginger and garlic in a little butter, then combine that with the lamb (no need to even brown it first!), sweet potatoes, curry powder, turmeric, salt, and pepper. Add some coconut milk and chicken broth and that’s it!

My slow cooker is my favorite kitchen tool! It’s so easy to use. I don’t have to put in a lot of work to make dinner. I also love how slow cooking brings out the best flavor in food and makes cheaper cuts of meat tender. To make this curry, all you have to do is steam some rice or get it from a Chinese restaurant. It’s that easy!

What Cut of Lamb Should I Use for This Stew?

When you go to the store, you may notice big, cheap pieces of beef, lamb, and pork. Don’t try cooking those cuts of meat by roasting or frying them, because they get tough and chewy. But these pieces of meat are perfect for making a delicious stew. The beef and pork come from the shoulder or legs, which are full of collagen.

Put the pieces into a pot and cook them slowly for a while. This breaks down the collagen, and your meat will become juicy, soft, and delicious!

About Curry Powder

There are lots of different brands of curry powder to choose from and they all have different tastes and flavors. Some typical ingredients in curry powder are turmeric, chilies, coriander, ginger, cumin, cardamom, and curry leaf. You can try different kinds to see which one you like best.

I like Madras curry powder because it has a bit of heat and makes dishes taste toasty. If you don’t like spicy food, you can try mild curry powder instead.

How to Make Lamb and Sweet Potato Curry Stew in a Slow Cooker

  • garlic

Melt some butter in a small pan over medium-high heat. Add ginger and garlic. Cook, stirring often, until it’s soft and lightly browned. This will take about 3 minutes.

Cover and set to Low. Let it cook for 7-8 hours (or High for 4-5 hours). When the meat and sweet potatoes are ready, season the curry with salt and pepper. Serve with cilantro, steamed rice, and lime wedges. Enjoy!
