Slow Braised Lamb Shoulder Casserole With Greek-Style Green Beans
Volunteering to host a dinner party for eight on a Wednesday night may seem like a recipe for disaster, but a slow cooker and a quick salad make life pretty easy.
After a good round of barbecues and evening picnics over what was a sticky Summer, the days are getting shorter and the evening breeze has a promise of a chill.
We have moved the parties indoors and I pulled out a perfect slow cooker recipe for this midweek feast with friends.
Inspired separately by a TV chef and a popular food magazine, I pulled together a slowly braised lamb dish which takes just minutes to organise in the morning before you head out for the day.
Perfect for a slow cooker or equally suited to a long lingering spell in a very low oven, the kitchen smelled amazing as our guests arrived for dinner.
A few laughs, lively conversation and a cheeky glass of wine is a real treat for a Wednesday night.
