Slow Cooker Lamb Curry Stovetop + Instant Pot


In a large, heavy skillet over medium high heat, heat oil. Once hot, add lamb; brown on all sides, working in batches if necessary to avoid crowding the pan. Place in slow cooker or instant pot.

Add garlic, onions and curry powder to the skillet; cook until onions have softened, 3 to 4 minutes. Place in slow cooker or instant pot.

Add lemon juice, tomatoes, stock, coriander, cumin and 1 teaspoon salt to slow cooker or instant pot. For slow cooker, cook on LOW for 6 hours or HIGH for 4 hours. For instant pot, cook on manual HIGH pressure for 60 minutes. Stir in yogurt; season to taste with salt and pepper.

Serve with basmati rice, yogurt and cilantro, if desired.
