Slow Cooker Lamb Ragu – Slow Cooking Perfected

Lamb ragu recipe slow cooker

This slow-cooked lamb ragout is an incredibly tasty dish that’s perfect if you’re looking for a fantastic pasta recipe.

At the end of cooking, the lamb is incredibly tender and the sauce is loaded with flavor. To complete this dish, sprinkle some scraped Parmesan cheese on top.

You should get six to eight servings following this recipe exactly. If you need to feed more, you can easily double or triple the recipe. Also, some side dishes are a great way to feed more people.

Be sure to store leftovers, as they will reheat well in the microwave or on the stove. I don’t recommend heating leftovers in the slow cooker, as it can take too long to reheat, which can lead to food poisoning.

For safe storage, keep leftovers in the refrigerator or freezer until needed. They will last for months in the freezer or just a few days in the refrigerator.

Adjust the recipe

There are quite a few ingredients needed to make this lamb ragout, but it’s certainly worth it. Below are some ideas on how you can modify the recipe.

If you can’t get your hands on some lamb but have access to lamb sausages, then these are a great replacement. Follow the recipe the same way, but cut them into slices after you’ve finished browning them in the pan. Obviously, you won’t crush sausages, so you can skip that step as well.

The type of pasta you use is entirely up to you. I recommend using pasta pappardelle, but other types will work just as well. For example, ragu goes great with gnocchi, rigatoni, linguini and many more.

The use of beef is an excellent alternative to lamb and is usually much more available. The final dish will be very different in taste and texture if you decide to use beef instead.

You may be able to get away with leaving some ingredients out. Still, for the best result, I highly recommend leaving the recipe alone.

Serving Ideas for Lamb Ragout

As with any good pasta dinner, some garlic bread will go incredibly aside. I love making homemade garlic bread, but the store-bought varieties are also pretty good.

For something a little different, you can serve this ragout over the top of a mashed potatoes. If you want to be a little healthier, you can puree sweet potatoes instead. Both are great options.

This recipe will create quite a bit of food, so you probably won’t need side dishes. However, side dishes are a great idea if you need to feed a crowd.

One pasta dish I love is the creamy chicken carbonara. Carbonara sauce is far from traditional, but it certainly won’t disappoint. It’s the perfect dish if you need to feed a crowd or have some picky eaters.
