As autumn is well and truly on the way and when we get into the winter months, there is nothing better than tucking in to a nice hearty, comfort food and this Slimming World Lamb Scouse (Syn Free) is just the ticket. Not only can this be made in the slow cooker, so it can cook all day while you are busy, or you can make it on the hob / cooker.
Slimming World Lamb Scouse (Syn Free) is a type of stew really, the name doesn’t come from Liverpool, it actually comes from the word “Lobscouse” and it was shorted to Scouse. It is traditionally eaten in the seaports of Northern Europe, places such as Liverpool and has been made since the early 1700’s. It can be made with either beef or lamb, I like to use lamb in mine.
Slow Cooker Scouse
Scouse is usually classed as a cheap meal, but I think some of the best recipes don’t need to cost the earth, you just need to be clever with your money. The recipe is usually made with neck or lamb, but I have used diced lamb as I want no fat on the meat.
