    PaulaG's Note:

    This recipe comes from The Gourmet Slow Cooker by Lynn Alley. Scotch Broth is a Scottish tradition that dates bake hundreds of years. This dish has plenty of substance and flavor. Cooking it in the crockpot makes it so easy to have dinner ready in no time. It is suggested that this be served with a Scotch beer or ale and some heavy crusty bread.

      I did this to the letter apart from I couldn't get shoulder chops, so I used a pack of stewing lamb on the bone. It may have been shin? Anyway it was pretty good. After 4 hours or so on low in the SC I pulled out the lamb, removed the flesh from the bone (dog had the bones as treats) and put it back in for another 2 hours. This dish is very easy to over season, so be careful not to put any in from the beginning, and taste properly before serving, too much pepper and salt ruins it.

      Delicious! We did use lamb stock cubes in addition to the water, since we had some. Hubby wanted scotch broth; I'd never had it; he's only had it out of cans before (*shudder*). I tried your recipe, and it was just as easy as opening a can, but worlds better! Likely about the same price, too. I'm usually very picky about soup, but this was stellar! Fabulous, easy, really great comfort food.
