Lamb & Sweet Potato Curry

This curry is a sure dinner party pleaser, as it is sure to satisfy all your guests - Paleo or not! Just increase the quantities accordingly. It is a perfect dish to use a cheaper cut of lamb such as shoulder.

It can be cooked on the stove top at a low simmer, in your crockpot or bunged into the oven and forgotten about for an hour and a half. Perfect!

100ml coconut milk
1 large onion, chopped
2 cloves garlic, chopped
1 large sweet potato
1-2 tbs coconut oil
Large handful of spinach

Preheat the oven to 140C.
Heat the oil on a medium heat in a your saucepan or oven proof dish.
Brown off the lamb and remove from pan.
Fry garlic and onion until softened.
Add the spices and fry off for 2 minutes.
Return the lamb and any juices to the pan.
Add the stock and bring to a simmer.
Place in oven and cook for an hour.
Add the sweet potato and cook for remaining 30 minutes.

  1. If this was to be cooked in a slow cooker, do you just throw in all the ingredients for around 6 hrs on low?
