This is meat cooked in the slow cooker, but potatoes cooked in the over. I find slow roasting Lamb with Lemon Potatoes very tricky and usually ends up getting burned. So - this is an easier, but more time consuming method.

For the Slow Cooked Lamb

  • 1 X Leg of Lamb (Needs to fit in Slow Cooker)
  • 2 X Lemons
  • 1 Sprig of Fresh Rosemary
  • Ping of Salt and Pepper
  • Olive Oil
  • Half a cup of White wine or Chicken stock

For the Potatoes

  • 1KG of Potatoes (Peeled and Sliced into 1 1/2 inch chuncks)
  • Olive Oil
  • 4 Garlic Cloves
  • 1.5 tsp dried oregano
  • Pinch of salt and pepper
  • 1/2 cup of chicken stock
  • 1/3 cup lemon juice


  1. For the Lamb On a chopping board, pat your lamb dry with paper towels. Finely grate about half the zest off the lemon and grind into a paste with the garlic, rosemary, oil, salt and pepper using a mortar and pestle. Rub the paste all over the lamb. If you like, let it sit on the countertop for half an hour or so, or refrigerate for a few hours or overnight. Put it into the CrockPot. Add about half a cup of liquid. Squeeze the juice of the lemon overtop too. Cover and cook on low for 6-8 hours.

  2. For the Potatoes. Preheat oven to 400°F. Spread the potatoes in a single layer in a 9″ x 13″ baking dish and pour the oil over them. Add the garlic, dried oregano, salt and pepper to taste and toss well to coat with the oil. Roast the potatoes for 15 minutes. Add the stock, toss and bake for 10 minutes more. Add the lemon juice, toss and bake for 10 to 15 minutes more, or until the potatoes are golden and cooked through. If you like, sprinkle with fresh oregano.

While it seems, on reading, delicious, this recipe lacks precision and is badly written...
