April 6, 2009

Ingredients

1 leg of lamb (that will fit in your CrockPot - if not, get the butcher to cut off the shank end) - with or without bone

1 lemon

4-5 garlic cloves, sliced or crushed

1 Tbsp. fresh rosemary, chopped

1 Tbsp. olive oil

1 tsp. coarse salt

1 tsp. freshly ground black pepper

Directions

1some wine, chicken or beef stock, tomato juice or water

2On a chopping board, pat your lamb dry with paper towels. Finely grate about half the zest off the lemon and grind into a paste with the garlic, rosemary, oil, salt and pepper using a mortar and pestle. Rub the paste all over the lamb. If you like, let it sit on the countertop for half an hour or so, or refrigerate for a few hours or overnight.

3Put it into the CrockPot. Add about half a cup of liquid. Squeeze the juice of the lemon overtop too.

4 Cover and cook on low for 6-8 hours.
