Stock. My stock was red wine gravy leftover from my instant pot lamb shanks. You can use your own stock, use a shop bought, or go without.
Shoulder. I used a small to medium sized lamb shoulder. You can use the same or go bigger and keep the same cook time. Though note that they do shrink a lot during cooking so you might need bigger than you think.
Browning. We have this amazing slow cooker that is safe for the hob/stovetop. It is this one if you want a slow cooker that you can use for browning or for sauteing.
Fat. Lamb is a fatty meat and generates a lot of fat in the slow cooker. I recommend you pour the contents into a mesh strainer and get rid of the fat and save what is left and use it towards gravy, or stock for your next lamb meal.
