Rick Steins Slow Cooked Greek Lamb recipe

From Cookipedia

This recipe is inspired by something I saw on Rick Stein's "From Venice to Istanbul" TV series recently.

He cooked Kleftiko Lamb and that included feta cheese and lots of ingredients that I won't be including - and a lot more that he didn't use. This will be my aide-memoir to enable me to replicate the recipe if it turns out to be good.

I loved the idea of a whole red pepper and lots of garlic - The recipe worked very well. Originally I cooked it for 4 hours but found that was probably too long. I would say if on high, the maximum needed (so the meat falls off the bone) is 3 hours.
