  • Summary

    Lamb shoulder is a very forgiving cut that's ideal for braising in a slow cooker. Here, it's amped up with Middle Eastern ingredients including dried lime and saffron. This recipe appears in our cookbook "Martha Stewart's Slow Cooker" (Clarkson Potter).

    Ingredients

    • 1 lamb shoulder (4 to 5 pounds)
    • Kosher salt and freshly ground pepper
    • 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
    • 2 large onions, finely chopped
    • 2 large carrots, finely chopped
    • 2 celery stalks, finely chopped
    • 1 teaspoon dried dill
    • 1 head garlic, cloves separated and peeled
    • 3 thyme sprigs
    • 1 cup dry white wine, such as Sauvignon Blanc
    • 1 cup fresh orange juice
    • 1 dried lime (available at kalustyans.com)
