Leg of Lamb in the Slow Cooker with Mint, Rosemary & Garlic

One of the most popular search terms people use to get here is “leg of lamb slow cooker”. Apparently I posted about it sometime back in 2008, and there are a great many people who want to know how to cook leg of lamb in the slow cooker. I’m glad to know this – there are few better – or simpler – meals than a melt-in-your-mouth leg of lamb, slow cooked while you go about your day.

If you pick up a leg of lamb – with or without the bone – that has had the shank end trimmed off, it will fit perfectly in a slow cooker. Lamb needs little help – I rubbed mine with chopped fresh mint, rosemary and garlic in no particular quantity, helped along with a glug of olive oil. I let it hang out for a bit, then put it in the slow cooker, put the lid on, and cook it on low for 8 hours. I didn’t even add any liquid – the roast released enough on its own, and all the moisture is contained in the slow cooker, so you don’t have to worry about it cooking off.

Mint sauce Leg of Lamb in the Slow Cooker with Mint, Rosemary & Garlic

To make a quick mint sauce that’s better than any that comes in a bottle, simmer equal parts sugar, rice or white wine vinegar and water – I used 1/3 cup of each – until the sugar dissolves, then add a handful of chopped fresh mint and let it steep. Voila – one minute mint sauce.

Add roasted potatoes + peas. Happy weekend!

Slow Roasted Leg of Lamb with Mint, Rosemary and Garlic

1 leg of lamb, without the shank
a handful of fresh mint, chopped
a few sprigs of fresh rosemary, chopped
a few cloves of garlic, crushed
a glug of olive oil
salt

Pat the lamb dry with paper towels, then combine the mint, rosemary, garlic and enough oil to make a runny paste, and smear it all over the lamb. Sprinkle with salt. If you have time, cover and refrigerate it for a few hours, or overnight.

Heat a large, heavy skillet with a drizzle of oil over medium-high heat and brown the lamb on all sides. Transfer to a slow cooker and cook on low for 8 hours. (If you like, add a glassful of red wine or chicken stock, but it’s not necessary – the slow cooker will contain all the juices from the meat and cook beautifully.) Serve hot, with mint sauce. Serves 6-8.

    OMG that is my kind of meal! Except I would use my Dutch oven. That is seriously mouthwatering. I confess I usually sub beef for lamb but this has me seriously reconsidering.

    Your comment about how the leg of lamb is the most searched recipe made me laugh. Mine is beef and noodles. If you’ve ever been to my blog you realize how funny that is–talk about not the typical thing on my blog.

    PS Jessica’s comment cracked me up!

    Do you suppose I could put it in the slow-cooker on low for up to 10 hours? Or will that overcook/dry out the meat?
    thanks!

    I have seen a lot of useful things on your site about computer systems.
    However, I’ve got the thoughts and opinions
    that netbooks are still not quite powerful more than enough to be a good option if you generally do jobs that require
    lots of power, like video enhancing. But for net surfing, statement processing,
    and most other popular computer functions they are okay, provided you don’t mind
    small screen size. Appreciate sharing your notions.

    This tasted great and was super easy. I’d recommend adding 1/2-1 cup of wine or broth before starting cooking so that the meat gets a true braise and stays a bit more moist. Following the recipe exactly, this came out sliceable, but not fork tender like osso bucco.
