Moist and delicious, 2 Ingredient Slow Cooker Roast Lamb is prepared in seconds. You won’t want to roast a leg of lamb in any other way once you’ve tried this easy slow cooker roast!
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 my half leg of 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 lamb joint and inserted garlic and fresh rosemary.
However, this really was one of those days where even the bare minimum was a huge effort. Hence, 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 juices 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!
Do you need to brown the lamb before slow cooking?
No, there’s no need to brown the lamb before slow cooking as the stock cube forms a lovely golden finish to the skin.
Do you need any added liquid to slow cook leg of lamb?
No, the leg of lamb will cook in it’s own juices to render beautifully tender meat.
How long does slow cooker half leg of lamb take to cook?
On high 3 1/2 – 4 hours and on low 7 – 8 hours.
How can you adapt this slow cooked roast lamb recipe?
If you have a bit more time then you could makes some cuts into the lamb and add garlic cloves (side sliced in half) and sprigs of rosemary for a delicious alternative.
