Remember the old commercial where a young Naomi Watts turned down a date with Tom Cruise because her mum was cooking a roast leg of lamb or slow-cooked leg of lamb recipe?
I can honestly say I would have done the same thing (had it ever come up). My mum’s lamb roast was (and still is) legendary.
While a roast is generally thought of as a pretty easy meal, timing can be a bit of an issue – will the veggies be ready at the same time as the meat? How do I know when the meat is just right? Why is my gravy lumpy!?
A great way to take the worry out of a roast is to use the slow cooker. This amazing device produces a roast lamb that is so tender that it can be ‘carved’ with a fork.
And the best part is, you only need to toss a few ingredients in the slow cooker and then go about your day, smug in the knowledge that you will come home to a perfectly cooked meal.
Actually, no, the very best part is that it looks as though you’ve spent hours in the kitchen when it takes just 10 minutes to prepare. So what are you waiting for, enjoy cooking! Delicious slow-cooked leg of lamb recipe
