Crock Pot Lamb with Prunes

Contributor: Stephanie O’Dea


  • 4 pounds boneless leg of lamb
  • 1 teaspoon each of:
    • rosemary
    • cumin
    • kosher salt
    • pepper
  • 4 cloves garlic, chopped
  • 2 cups dried plums
  • 1/2 cup white wine (you could use apple juice)
  • 1 cinnamon stick

Use a 4-5 quart crockpot. Put meat inside, and rub it on all sides with dry spices. Add garlic and prunes. Pour in wine, and toss in a cinnamon stick. Cover and cook on low for 8 hours, or on high for about 4. I’d go with the longer and lower cooking time, though.

If you’d like, remove meat from stoneware, and make a gravy out of accumulated juice with some cornstarch. The prunes will be awfully squishy, and can blend right in with the juice and cornstarch. Serve with mashed potatoes or polenta with gravy drizzled over the top.
