Why make Lamb Curry in the Instant Pot?

This 6 qt. Instant Pot (paid link) is a perfect way to cook lamb curry. Lamb takes a long time to become tender. On the stove it can take 2 hours or more until the meat falls apart. But by using the pressure in the Instant Pot, you can cook the lamb curry in less than 40 minutes.

Is this Lamb Curry spicy?

When experimenting and creating this recipe, I originally made it with 3 tablespoons of Good Shepherd and 2 tablespoons of the Chain Reaction Spice. It came out nice and very spicy. So if you like it that way then add a little more spice. However, if you like it on the slightly spicy side just stick to the recipe.

Add 2 tablespoons of butter to Instant Pot. Press, “Sauté,” and heat until hot. For this recipe I like to use butter as it imparts a nice flavor. Because this recipe isn’t high in calories, I feel butter is a great addition.


Add onions and brown for 5 minutes. Add chopped lamb and brown for about 5 minutes or until browned.
