Slow Cooked Leg of Lamb with Potatoes

Slow Cooked Leg of Lamb with Potatoes

Prep Time: 20 mins Cooking Time: 8 hours

Ingredients

  • 16 new potatoes
  • 2 onions, sliced
  • Leg of lamb (size dependent on the capacity of your slow cooker)
  • 7 fresh rosemary sprigs
  • 5 garlic cloves, halved
  • Bunch of fresh mint
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon maple syrup
  • 1 tablespoon mint sauce
  • 2 heaped tablespoons gravy granules (lamb or vegetable)

Instructions

1

Place the potatoes and sliced onions at the bottom of the slow cooker

2

Use a sharp knife to cut 17 holes over the leg of the lamb, stuff 10 holes with a slice of garlic and 7 holes with a rosemary sprig and then place the lamb leg into the slow cooker on top of the potatoes and onions

3

In a small bowl, or jug, mix a handful of mint leaves and olive oil together - pour this over the lamb and cook on low for 8 hours

4

After 8 hours, set the oven to 200°C and mix together the maple syrup and mint sauce

5

Once the oven is heated to 200°C, remove the lamb leg from the slow cooker and place into a roasting tin, before pouring the maple syrup and mint sauce over it and transferring to the oven for 20 minutes

6

Add the gravy granules to the juice left in the slow cooker to create an amazing gravy – pour it into a gravy boat so that it is ready to serve

7

Serve once cooled.

This recipe makes a super easy but utterly delicious meal for Easter Sunday lunch, lovely with some lightly steamed runner beans and asparagus. If serving for a large number, some mini sausages wrapped in bacon (for the adults) would be a lovely addition too.
