  • 1 brown onion, finely chopped
  • 1 carrot, peeled, finely chopped
  • 2 celery sticks, finely chopped
  • 2 garlic cloves, crushed
  • 250g brown mushrooms, thickly sliced
  • 1 cup (250ml) red wine or beef stock
  • 800g can diced tomatoes

  • 1 tbs coarsely chopped rosemary
  • 1 tbs thyme sprigs
  • 1 tbs balsamic vinegar
  • 2 tsp brown sugar

  1. Heat half the oil in a large frying pan over high heat. Add half the lamb and cook, turning occasionally, for 5 mins or until brown all over. Transfer to a slow cooker.
  2. Repeat with the remaining lamb.
  3. Heat the remaining oil in the pan. Add onion, carrot, celery and garlic and cook, stirring, for 5 mins or until onion softens. Transfer to the slow cooker.
  4. Add the mushroom to the pan and cook for 2 mins or until tender. Add to the slow cooker with the wine or stock, diced tomato, tomato paste, rosemary, thyme, vinegar and sugar. Cover and cook for 4 hours on high (or 6 hours on low) or until the lamb is very tender.
  5. Use tongs to transfer the lamb to a large heatproof bowl. Use 2 forks to coarsely shred lamb. Return to the slow cooker and stir to combine. Season.
