THANK YOU for a delicious meal that was no fuss no muss. I must say I have never done lamb in a crock and was a bit nervous. Not anymore! I will do this recvipe often as it came out so temder and juicy. No dry spots anywhere! My DH is is not really a lamb eater but married a Greek so eats it, said it is delicious! He had 2 helpings then I told him what it was. He could not believe it. He said it tasted different. I did not use mint as I usually do and because it was fall off thebone and he did not know I believe tricked him. I did take a bit of license in that I did not use soy but used home made beef stock instead. Came out great. I also added in carrots, sliced lengthwise and a few potatoes to sit the lamb on. I did add in a 1/4 c of lemon as well. The taters soaked up the lemon flavor just right. Served with Vrasta Fasolakia Freska . We had a little bit of Greece here tonight . Thank you.
A leg of lamb is a real treat for us as it's so expensive here (even though I live in a country that has 10 times as many sheep as people!!) But it had been so long since we had a nice Sunday roast and I decided to make this recipe. I used chicken stock and ordinary soy sauce, it wasnt too salty and turned out perfect. Very tasty and we all loved it.
Thanks for a great recipe.
I'm one of those people who hate lamb.... I don't understand how someone would not know that they were eating lamb.... This recipe doesn't change that fact. However, my husband and daughter love lamb. This recipe is the best. It's quick and easy to prepare. After dinner last night where they stuffed themselves and raved about the dish, my daughter colored in the five star rating at the bottom of the recipe. She specifically requested it for today's lunch. I made about a half recipe. I added 1/2 onion, 1 carrot and 1 parsnip all peeled and cut up and sauteed slightly. I also didn't bother to stuff the roast with the garlic or rosemary and instead just tossed them in the crock pot.
You couldn't ask for a more tender roast; it cut like soft butter after only 6 hours in the crockpot. Chef floWer is right...watch out for the juices...it really tastes salty. I made some gravy from the dark rich broth, but didn't care for it since it was so salty. Next time I will skip the soy sauce, even the reduced sodium. Otherwise the lamb was flavorful and we enjoyed it.
Finally a crockpot roast where DH enjoyed not just the meat but the gravy made from the juices. I ended up with 5 cups (put one cup full in the freezer to solidify the fat and made gravy with the liquid (very nice) the other four cups will be the bases for a soup. Thank Chef floWer for a keeper. Made for Please Review my Recipe tag game.
This is such a flavorful and simple way to prepare leg of lamb. The meat is juicy and very tender. I served this with Carrots & Potatoes Roasted w/ Onion and Garlic and some mint jelly and crusty rolls for the perfect meal. I will definitely make this again! Thank you, Chef floWer! I had to edit my review because the second night of this succulent lamb deserved no less than a complete 5 star review : ) Thanks again, Chef floWer!!!
This was the first time I have cooked lamb in the crock pot. I used a small 1 kg rolled lamb roast and it has cooked very nicely and is very moist, just falling apart. It took about 7 hours and was very enjoyable.
I used a small (0.4kg) boneless joint and cooked it on low overnight. I didn't salt the meat, but did use regular soy sauce. I also didn't bother inserting the garlic and rosemary- just crushed a couple of garlic cloves and added that directly to the slow cooker, along with a couple of sprigs of fresh rosemary and thyme. Everything else was as described.
I found that the meat was excellent. Super moist and tasty. I made the liquid into a gravy, but I didn't much like how it turned out- too salty and the lamb flavour was very overpowering. If I were to make this again, I wouldn't bother with the gravy at all, and just serve a mint sauce. The meat is juicy enough that it doesn't really need a sauce.
My husband and toddler loved this! It is so easy to put together, I was done in less than 5 minutes! I didn't add salt and I used chicken stock because thats what I had. I have also made this in the pressure cooker and it was done in 50 mins (My husband likes the meat very soft). Thanks for a keeper!
Awesome lamb! I used a considerably smaller boneless leg because I was only cooking for 2 people and over 5 lb. seemed excessive. I kept the liquid amount the same, however, to make sure it didn't dry out since I was going to be at work all day and it would be in the cooker for 9-ish hours. I used regular sodium soy sauce and stock without adding any extra salt and we didn't find it to be overly salty. I will definitely be making this again. It was so easy and tasty! Thanks floWer!
