In a large sauté pan, heat a few Tbsp olive oil on medium heat. Saute onions and carrots with the spices.

Place onions and carrots into the crockpot.

Add lamb, potatoes and the garlic cloves with the water into the crockpot. The water should almost cover the meat, so add more or less depending.

Leave crockpot on high for one hour and then switch to low. Allow to cook until you are ready to serve for Shabbat lunch.

If desired serve with chopped fresh mint and parsley.
