Ingredient Checklist

Directions

Instructions Checklist
  • Bring leg of lamb to room temperature, about 2 hours.

    Advertisement
  • Pour wine into a slow cooker. Mix lemon juice, honey, mustard, garlic, vinegar, rosemary, thyme, sea salt, and pepper together in a bowl until a thick paste forms. Massage paste into the lamb using your hands; gently place into the slow cooker.

  • Cook on Low, without removing the cover, for 5 hours. An instant-read thermometer inserted near the bone should read 145 degrees F (65 degrees C). Let lamb rest for 15 to 20 minutes.

Tip

Aluminum foil helps keep food moist, ensures it cooks evenly, keeps leftovers fresh, and makes clean-up easy.

Very easy and delicious. Not dry at all. My only quibble is that the recipe states that the marinade is a paste. Mine was not - it was a sauce, although I followed the directions to the letter. Nevertheless, a delicious , moist roast enjoyed by all the family! (I used a 4 lb. boneless leg of lamb from Costco, and the ingredient proportions were perfect.) Read More

I made this with a boneless leg of lamb that I purchased at Trader Joe's. The meat was still a little pink inside but was dry and not enjoyable. I wish I had oven roasted it instead. I had expected it would come out tender and was disappointed. Read More

First off, I had an almost 8lb leg of lamb w/bone. I seasoned all sides w/salt & pepper and seared on all sides before rubbing "juice" mixture (not paste) all over meat before placing in crock w/wine (red & a bit of white cause that's all I had) already cooking on low. I tripled ingredients except thyme as I'm not a big fan. I did add oregano (because I LOVE oregano w/lamb). Used stoned ground mustard w/horseradish and everything else listed. I only gave a 4* because I feel that it was not a "paste" but a juice and I cooked my almost 8lb roast for 3 hours on low and it was done! If I left it in longer it would have been ruined. I added cut up potatoes and carrots into the juice while my lamb rested approx. 30 minutes then carved. I removed some of the juice to a pot and thickened to make a gravy for lamb and veggies. It was just AMAZING!!! I was a bit leary as to cooking a lamb in the crock pot but it did work. It was OH SOOOO GOOD. Thanks for the idea. HAPPY NEW YEAR! Read More

This is phenomenal. The only thing I did differently was to rub thyme, rosemary, garlic and pepper on the lamb 24 hours ahead of time and let it sit. This lame is fall apart tender and full of incredible flavor. I will make this again for sure. Read More

Will definitely make this again. I was hoping for the best when I searched for leg of lamb in the slow cooker but am delighted that I found this, Did exactly as written except used bottled lemon juice instead of from a fresh lemon. And I shorted the amount of thyme since that is not a favorite flavor. The roast smelled great while cooking is extremely moist now that it is done. Sample tasting is delicious. Just making the potatoes and veggies now but promises to be a great dinner. Read More

Currently in my slow cooker but I'm confident. Note about the paste - Don't mix the wine into the other paste ingredients, the recipe says the wine just goes into the bottom of the cooker, then mix paste and rub it on the meat, then into the wine in the slow cooker. No wonder everyone's paste wasn't pastey! Read More

Delicious. Other reviews are right -- the "paste" is pretty liquid-y but I rubbed it on it anyway and it was delicious. I added Cumin and Coriander to the rub and added more salt and pepper. I also used at least a cup of red wine and cooked it on low for 8 hours. The result was incredible! I took the juices and made a gravy from them with butter and flour in saucepan and poured it over.

Used boneless leg. Made stuffing to pack hole nice and full holes can cause trouble with over cook fast. Added 5 drops of siracha to paste. Made sauce into paste on low heat stir in some quick tapioca or bit of minute rice. Not harm flavour careful with rice gets thicker fast! Will make again for sure!. Found 5 hrs lil long. Use thermometer earlier is all. Enjoy! Read More
