This recipe was so simple and absolutely delicious. Onions and lamb itself created cooking liquid. The only thing I might do next time is add a bit more onion, I couldn't get enough!! Yum!!

About the water...I created the account just to answer about the water, and NO, you don't need to add any water because the lamb will release liquid enough during the cooking process.I am a beginner and gave this recipe a chance because it looked easy - and it really is! No secrets, just follow what they say and you will have a delicious dish! =)

Have given it 5 stars because it looks good so far but as asked prior Do you need any liquid with this recipe? It is now 2017 and still no one has answered this question which is quite a simple one really. I am just about to make this meal for tonight and am hoping that it does not need liquid but if I have any doubts I will be adding some stock.

Just a question. Should we add any liquid to this recipe or will it make it's own gravy?

Delish! I had them in slow cooker for 7 hours. For the last 1 1/2 hours I added about 2 cups fresh tomatoes, in chunks (seeded), a can of quartered artichoke hearts (drained), and about half a cup pitted kalamata olives. Served with green lentils simmered with a clove (only one!) studded piece of onion and two bay leaves. Heaven! I made a sauce of plain Greek yogurt, chopped fresh mint and lemon zest. But forgot to use it. haha

Delicious! I tried this easy recipe, and our lamb/mutton chops were cooked perfectly. I will definitely make these again!!

Didn't like it. Meat had a very overpowering, strong taste.

My family and I love this recipe. I have made it several times for guests, also, and they all agree! Liking lamb was an acquired taste for all of us and this delicious recipe was contributed considerably to that.

The lambs were so tender. The meat just fell off from the bones. They taste great. The more it was good with mint julep jelly to spread on the cooked meat. Thanks TOH.
