Lindsey's Luscious Lemony Lamb for Your Crock Pot

“Meltingly tender lamb on a bed of onions, potatoes and garlic with preserved lemons and greek seasoning. Not a pretty dish but really wonderful to come home to on a wet cold day, the smell is just divine. A crisp green salad, or greek, a big glass of red wine, cozy slippers - nothing else needed!! Please use floury potatoes not waxy and feel free to use more lemon or less depending on your taste but it will mellow and blend I promise!”
