  1. AWSOME recipe - five stars for taste and five stars for easy preparation! Made exactly as written without changes, and it turned out wonderfully. After 5 hours on high the meat was so tender it fell apart. Served with brown sugar roasted carrots, onions and apples. Will make this again! Thanks for posting this keeper.<br/>Made for Harvets Moon Apple Festival of the Diabetes Forum.
  2. Great taste and so tender! The extra sauce in the bottom of the pot made a great match poured lightly over mesclun, corn and a few other salad vegetables. And for others that want to try this great recipe don't forget that Australian cider is alcoholic cider not apple juice or extract.
  3. I recently discovered through a friend how fantastic lamb tastes, when it's cooked correctly . I fell in love with how delicious her recipe tasted Growing up I hated how it smelled and tasted I would ask what is that smell or this tastes nasty ,only gyros were the only way I ate it. I want to make a first attempt at cooking lamb chops with out messing up ,since they are expensive. My husband hasn't favored this meat either ,I want a recipe that will blow our socks off without too much hooplah maybe in the crock pot ? Anyone ? Thanks
  4. Made as directed, no changes. Thanks to Peter J, I used an organic hard cider. Served atop my recipe #262668. Thanks, Jewelies! Made for Recipe Swap #15.
  5. Just delicious. I added some potatoes to the crockpot for the last couple of hours, and they colored beautifully and soaked up broth. I used less honey (about half as much) to suit my own taste -- might add more ginger next time and skip the honey all together. The cider and ginger gave the lamb a savory-sweet and sort of unexpected flavor. Just wonderful! Thank you so much!
