Instant Pot Butter Cabbage Lamb Stew and a lovely winter warmer, quickly done and not wasting much time in the kitchen.

Can you overcook Lamb in a Stew?

Yes, it’s possible to overcook lamb stew. If you cook it for too long, the meat will start to fall apart, and it will actually lose moisture and begin to toughen. Cook the stew just until the meat is fork-tender but still intact.

Yield: 4 servings
