Hi everyone,

I took a roast lamb out for dinner tonight and was wanting to do it in the slow cooker.  Now i don't want anything else with it (eg garlic, rosemary etc) I just want roast lamb!!  But i have never cooked one in it before, how do i do it??  Sorry if sounds silly!!

Any quick help would be great

Basically, just pop it in and let it cook.  If you dont want it sitting in the juices, then rest it on balls of tightly wadded up alfoil.

Cook for approx 6hrs, depending on its size.

in the bottom of the cooker put some of the following:
halved onions
quartered potatoes
balls of foil

sit the meat on top
put the lid on and switch it on

that's it

Thanks girls!!  Now at least i can enjoy my roast with a sick child who won't get off me long enough to be able to cook it traditional way.

Thanks so much!

I also do the foil balls but I put in the bottom some vinger, sugar and water. I think I got that out of the slow cooker bit at the top.

I mus be doing something wrong, cause when I cook a roast in the oven, I just throw it in there and forget about it, just as I would do with a slow cooker version!!! Which I am doing tonight... but I put in small amount of stock and sprigs of rosemary, and then some sweet potato chunks to sit the lamb on! Hope your turned out OK,a nd that your child is better!!!

Rebby - LOL!!  Nope kisses for me LOL!!

Dixibelle - Thanks yeah he is better!  Typical, was worried bout him being sick all day and he has been fine all day!  

I ended up putting some whole chat potatoes under the lamb.  See how we go!!  The lamb feels really tender and am really looking forward to it.

I forgot about coming back in here!  Lamb turned out really tender and oh so yummy!!  Didn't really go much on the chat potatoes under the lamb though.  Didn't really like the flavour of them! Though liked the idea of cooking the lamb on them as opposed to aluminium foil.

Thanks for the tips everyone!

Kasey
