Slow Cooker Lamb Biryani 

Budget slow cooker lamb biryani

In our household we are currently trying to be extra healthy after eating a few too many treats over the Christmas season!

Lamb is a great source of protein, zinc and iron. Recently I was asked to create a recipe using Welsh Lamb. It is excellent quality with its certified PGI status that guarantees that the meat has been reared and prepared to the highest standard.

The lamb I received was a very lean cut. It tasted lovely and tender in my slow cooked lamb biryani and completely debunked the myth that lamb is a fatty meat.

Serves 4-6


600g Welsh Lamb Supreme, cut into 2cm cubes 

200g brown rice 

800ml vegetable stock 

2cm fresh ginger, grated 

1 tsp cumin 

2 tsp garlic granules 

1/2 tsp cayenne pepper 

1 tsp turmeric 

2 tsp coriander 

150g peas (fresh, frozen or tinned) 

Cooking oil

  1. In a frying pan, heat a little oil and lightly brown the lamb meat.
  2. Add all the ingredients to your slow cooker, including the lamb. Cover with lid and cook on a low heat for 4-5 hours or until all liquid has been absorbed.

*I kindly received the lamb from Rhug Estate in return for a healthy lamb recipe*

  1. That looks like an amazing biryani! I love all the spices and herbs you have used in it. I bet it is so tender and tasty cooking it in a slow cooker too! Great recipe 🙂 #YumTum

    1. Thank you! I think the mixture of the cut of lamb and the fact it was slow cooked meant it was tender.
      All the herbs and spices makes it really tasty, getting the herbs right is a real challenge sometimes!
