German Lamb in Sour Cream (Crock Pot) (Aka Treasure Trove #1)

"A few days ago I discovered a long-lost treasure trove of recipes I had copied while in Dallas & sent to Iceland for safe keeping. The effort was forgotten over time in the excitement of coming here & DH hid them so safely that it was nearly 4 yrs b4 I found them & realized what they were. In my pre-RZ cooking phase, I used 3 main recipe sources. My best guess is this may have been a Food Network recipe & I will be guessing w/ea I enter. This is treasure trove #1 & was chosen because I love lamb, German fare & using my crock pot often. Enjoy! (# of servings & times have been estimated)"

"I am an American transplanted from Dallas to Iceland by marriage to a native Icelander & I retired to become his "Kitchen Queen". We love to entertain our family & friends, so I have an eclectic collection of recipes. I especially love simple, easy-fix, flexible & make-ahead recipes - BUT also like challenging myself on occasion. I enjoy baking & food photography. I am devoted to the "More is Always Better Principle" & apply it liberally to bacon, butter & garlic. I can have ingredient issues due to availability here in Iceland & my DH is medically diet-restricted from some ingredients as well. Either situation might require me to modify a recipe, but I will do my best to be true to your recipes & fair/honest in my reviews. Mary Pat (aka twissis)"

    This was absolutely amazing! The meat was so tender, it would just melt in your mouth!!! A "keeper" for sure! Thank you for sharing such a smashing recipe! XO LA :-)

    Used ground lamb since I got some on sale the week prior (yeah yummy sales) Turned them into lamb meatballs. 1/2 the recipe for 2 and served over mashed potatoes. Yum Yum !! Made for ZWT 6.

    This was truly delicious, and smelled heavenly! It was all I could do to keep from sneaking tastes throughout the day as it cooked. I made a couple of minor changes- first, I deglazed the skillet with hot water, then used that as part of the liquid. Second, I added the flour as well as the meat in step 2 to the crock, so there was no need for the flour and water mixture in step five. I served the sour cream separately at the table for each person to use as needed, but the stew was so good as is, that no one wanted any. Lastly, I only needed to cook this for 8 hours, as the lamb was falling apart tender at that point. Made for ZWT6.

    This was a lovely lamb dish! It was thick and creamy but not too rich and heavy for a summer meal. No one flavour really overwhelmed any of the others. Made exactly as stated, and it got 5 stars from all five satisfied diners. Thanks so much twissis!
