Today I’m sharing my stupidly easy plus utterly moist and delicious 2 Ingredient Slow Cooker Roast Lamb.
As we head into summer and look forward to balmy hot days I really don’t want to spend much time cooking or switch the oven on in an already hot kitchen. Last Sunday it was a sweltering day and I had a virus. The last thing I wanted to do was cook or wash up lots of greasy, burnt pans but I had a half a leg of lamb that needed cooking.
So instead of roasting it in the oven along with potatoes I decided a less messy and cooler solution would be to roast the lamb in the slow cooker and to make ActiFry roast potatoes. Then all I had to do was boil/steam some vegetables and make some gravy.
In the past I have made cuts into the leg of lamb and inserted garlic and fresh rosemary.
However this really was one of those days where even the bear minimum was a huge effort so I decided that hubby’s idea of just sprinkling over a lamb stock cube for a bit of flavour enhancement sounded like a fab idea.
If you have a cook’s syringe or one of those fancy jugs that separates the fat from the meat juices then you can add the latter to your gravy for a great flavour boost.
We were all in food heaven eating our lamb Sunday roast, the meat was really tender and falling off the bone and the the stock cube really enhanced the lamb flavour! I was very happy to not have messed up my oven with all the lamb fat and there were no cumbersome roasting tins to wash up.
So summer or winter I will definitely be using the slow cooker to roast all my lamb joints from now on and it’s so energy efficient too!
