One Pot Greek Braised Lamb

As you guys have probably already noticed, me and my Dutch Oven are best friends! It seriously makes cooking easy and just so much tastier! I love whipping up dinner while my girls are napping and popping it in the oven, that way when it is dinner time I can just pop it right out and no sweat during the busy night time!

Lamb is one of my favorite proteins. I just love the flavor of it and my body literally craves it all of the time!!! I wanted to change things up from my typical lamb dishes (here and here) and braise some lamb in my dutch oven this time. Holy fabulous! The flavor is great and it’s definitely one I will continue to make in my kitchen! I hope you enjoy!
