What’s for Dinner: Slow Cooker Leg of Lamb

December 19, 2012

If you’re looking for easy meals for dinner, you can’t go past this one!  This is a great slow cooker recipe that you can make all year round.  I have to confess though – I’ve got the L plates on when it comes to the slow cooker!  I don’t like the idea of having to pre-cook things before I put them into the slow cooker, because for me that is hard work!  I’d prefer to do all the prep in one hit.

When I’m searching out and testing slow cooker recipes I look for EASY slow cooker recipes – basically ones you just put all the ingredients in the slow cooker and walk away!  I’m keen to try different recipes that mean I can use a slow cooker all year round – ESPECIALLY to keep us out of the kitchen in summer!  If I am only using an appliance for one or two months of the year it is taking up space, and I HATE that!

Today I’m excited to share with you a great roast lamb recipe you can make in the slow cooker.  Perfect easy recipe that will solve the what’s for dinner challenge or what to put in the lunches! The only thing you’ll need to adjust is cooking time – you’ll need anywhere between 6-8 hours depending on how well done you like your lamb.
