Sounds a lot like a recipe I had my eye on earlier:

I don't have a crockpot, but I have one of these that's great for slow cooking.

I'm not sure my almost 7 pounds of lamb would fit in there though.

Yeah those work great, I have one as well. Add a cup of red wine and a couple sprigs of rosemary and it should come out great.

Any kind of broth will do, anything that will produce a bit of steam.

Have you ever roasted Garlic in your Pot?

Get about three of those Elephant Garlic, add a cup of water, and roast on 350 for about and hour and a half. Good stuff !

Oh god yes! Roasted garlic is the best! A chicken requires at least 10 cloves, they're so delicious!

And I have been preparing the broth for a couple of days already. I made chicken stock a couple of nights ago, just boiling 3 chicken legs with salt, water, onion, garlic (of course), celery, carrots, bay leaves, ginger, coriander, 5 all spice corns, black pepper.

Last night I made a pork roast in my clay pot using the chicken broth so now I have a most awesome chicken pork broth to use for the lamb. beercheer.gif

I can imagine! cheers.gif

Now for some cooking doom; I had planned on taking the lamb out when it was precisely 49C. Now I notice the meat thermometer has gone to hell! damned.gif I'll just have to base this on math. uhoh.gif

Oh and this is the recipe I went for! Emeril never disappoints, easy and delicious recipes. Although I've never made lamb that didn't include olive oil before. This will be interesting.

Actually I took it out 20 minutes before the full hour that Emeril suggested. It smelled and looked done so we shall see. The meat is resting for the time being.

Meanwhile... drinking.gif

Anybody here tried to slow cook lamb? drinking.gif


Slow cooking just prolongs needless suffering of the animal.

Best to get it over with quickly and mercifully.
