  1. Spray 5- to 6-quart slow cooker with cooking spray. Sprinkle lamb with 1/2 teaspoon of the cumin, the turmeric and salt. In 12-inch skillet, heat oil over medium-high heat. Add half of the lamb; cook 6 minutes, stirring occasionally, until browned on all sides. Remove lamb with slotted spoon; place in slow cooker. Repeat with remaining lamb.
