One meat that I have never cooked before is lamb. I'm not sure why but I just never have, I usually cook with chicken or prawns but more recently I'm trying to be more adventurous and cook new recipes. I never used to be much of a meat eater growing up and was extremely fussy, I would refuse to eat beef and lamb, since becoming a mum I've become less fussy and will now eat beef unless it's mince beef and I will eat a lamb roast. My mum cooks the best lamb roast, and I always remember how juicy and succulent the meal was that I really fancied making a lamb roast this weekend.
Now that I am quite enjoying using the slow cooker and use it on a regular basis I decided to cook the lamb in there. It turned out better than I had imagined, and especially since I have never cooked lamb before. Here is the recipe for those interested, I kind of just made it up as I went along.
Leg of lamb (or which ever joint you prefer)
Chop up one onion and the carrots and place at the bottom of the slow cooker.
Smear rosemary, garlic, mint and oil all over the lamb and sprinkle in salt. If you have time you could place this in the fridge for a few hours to soak up the flavours.
Place the lamb in the slow cooker and cook on low for about 8 hours. You could add a glass of wine if you wish and any other spices/herbs. The slow cooker will get all the juices from the meat so there will be a lovely flavour to the lamb. Use the juices for the gravy and cook the vegetable and potatoes to serve with.
How do you like to cook your lamb?
