Lamb is succulent and tender when it is slow cooked in a slow cooker. You will love the melt-in-the-mouth meat that falls off the bone. My recipe is incredibly easy and you can sit back, relax and let the slow cooker do all the work!
Slow Cooked Leg of Lamb With Rosemary and Garlic
1 small bunch fresh rosemary (coarsely chopped)
3 cloves garlic (minced)
Zest of 1 lemon
leg of lamb
freshly ground black pepper
For the mint sauce
4 tbsp chopped fresh mint leaves
2 pinches salt
1 tsp sugar
3 tbsp wine vinegar
1 tbsp hot water
- Mix the chopped rosemary, minced garlic, lemon zest and olive oil together. Season the lamb with salt and pepper and rub the marinade into it.
- Brown the lamb on all sides in a large frying pan.
- Transfer the meat to your slow cooker. You don’t need to add any liquid – the lamb releases enough on its own.
- Cook on low for 8 hours.
- To make the mint sauce, mix the chopped mint, salt, sugar, wine vinegar and hot water.
This slow cooked leg of lamb with rosemary and garlic is delicious served with the homemade mint sauce and crispy roast potatoes and veg.
