I have never had much success as the flavour seems to leave meat when I do it and please can anyone tell me how to do better?!
I would love to master this so it’s ready effortlessly when I’m back later and I never know how much liquid to add or what I’m doing...
thanks if anyone can help

Bit of red wine in the bottom of slow cooker. Make a few cuts and put slices of garlic or sprigs of rosemary in them. It doesn't look ver nice when it's done unless you brown it bit I never bother because once it's sliced and has gravy in it it looks mouthwatering.

This recipe, brown the lamb first on high heat to keep the flavour in, add everything on the list and cook for 13 hours on low. You can thank me when you've tasted it wink

Half leg I would cook for 7/8 hours, also I prefer bone in.

Brown the meat on all sides in a frying pan.
Stud with about 4 - 6 gloves of garlic, 4 sprigs of rosemary, season liberally with salt and pepper.
I then give it about one hour on high, and six or seven hours on low, although a small leg may be done in four if you like it pink.

I do lamb in the slow cooker. Jar of cranberry, couple of table spoons of Worcester sauce, paprika and bit of lamb stock.

I do it for about 8 hours on low. Turn it over every so often.

I remove the fat from the liquid, add some more Worcester and cranberry jelly and simmer in a pan to reduce a bit to make a sort of sauce/ gravy.

Green veg , garlic roast new potatoes and Yorkshire's.

Meat just melts in the mouth.


My family call it "cranberry lambery" 😬

Oh yes I brown it a bit in a pan first too
