Slow-cooked Leg of Lamb with Garlic, Lemon and Rosemary, and Lemon Potatoes with Garlic & Oregano


I may be forced to switch careers to something not food-related. I mean, food is just so good. This photo does not do dinner justice. (And yes, I realize that is not a suitable serving size for meat and potatoes. Did I mention the roasted lamb and garlicky lemon potatoes? And how good they were? I knew to take lots from picking at the crispy bits.) I’d like to say we also ate salad, but there just wasn’t room.

And the funny thing? It’s one of the easiest things I’ve ever made. Why is it that the celebratory stuff – the edibles that make a huge splash – always end up being the simplest? What are we so afraid of?

(Ha – I thought this thought felt familiar – I had the same reaction last time I made roast leg of lamb!)

Lamb, of course, is all over the place in spring, and very often makes its way onto an Easter table. Cooking an entire leg of lamb, however, can be a hassle, mostly due to its shape – thick on one end, tapered on the other, it’s difficult to cook evenly without one end being overcooked or the other raw. Deboned legs of lamb are good alternatives – without bones it’s a more uniform cut of meat, and stuffable – but in general meat roasted on the bone has more flavour.

The other thing about leg of lamb, whether it’s the entire leg or just the shank portion, is that it has a lot of tough connective tissues which need long, slow cooking in order to break them down.

Enter my CrockPot. (While we’re on the subject, I stopped by Zellers today, and while chasing W down the small appliances aisle noticed that CrockPots – the same kind I gave away awhile ago – are 50% off this week – only $24.95! Twenty-four! Ninety-five!) Lamb is the perfect candidate for a slow cooker. I bought an entire leg, bone in, and when it looked like it might not fit (I told the butcher I planned to jam it into my CrockPot) he simply sawed off the shank. Perfect.

Now, any number of flavours go with lamb. You don’t need to rub it down with anything, but I chose to make a sort of rough paste out of garlic, rosemary, lemon and olive oil and smear it all over the meat first. Cumin would have worked well too, or fresh thyme. At this point you could leave it to sit for a bit, or refrigerate it overnight to let it marinate. Then all I did was toss it into the slow cooker – no need to brown it first, although you could – pour about a half cup of red wine or stock or tomato juice or water around it, and leave it to cook on low for 6-8 hours.

Slow-cooked Leg of Lamb with Garlic, Lemon & Rosemary (in the CrockPot!)


Yields1 Serving

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


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


On 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.


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


Cover and cook on low for 6-8 hours.

And the only thing to serve with roast lamb is lemon potatoes. So I offer up this recipe:

Lemon Potatoes with Garlic and Oregano


Yields1 Serving

3 lbs. Yukon gold or baking potatoes, peeled and cut into 1 1/2 inch pieces
1/2 cup olive or canola oil
4 garlic cloves, crushed or thinly sliced
1 1/2 tsp. dried oregano, crumbled
1 tsp. salt
Freshly ground black pepper
1/2 cup beef or chicken stock
1/3 cup lemon juice
chopped fresh oregano (optional)


Preheat oven to 400°F. Spread the potatoes in a single layer in a 9" x 13" baking dish and pour the oil over them. Add the garlic, dried oregano, salt and pepper to taste and toss well to coat with the oil.


Roast the potatoes for 15 minutes. Add the stock, toss and bake for 10 minutes more. Add the lemon juice, toss and bake for 10 to 15 minutes more, or until the potatoes are golden and cooked through.


If you like, sprinkle with fresh oregano.

    Well Julie, you might have given me a taste for leg of lamb. I’ve never had it, but after seeing this recipe, and I could almost taste the goodness…I might just make some for Easter!

    I’m making the no knead bread for Easter, I will slice it, toast it on my very old wood baking oven at the sugar shack, and serve it with a nice coating of maple butter to my guests.

    Looking at your cook book this morning, I need an diner plan for tonight.

    Have a great cooking day gals.

    Other than the occassional lamb chop, I have never cooked lamb. Lemon potatoes I am already familiar with but don’t make them often because they are “too good” (I have no control at times) I always thought it was best to roast lamb only to rare? Slow cookers are definately easy and can tenderize anything. $24.95? I may look at upgrading my crockpot…..

    As always, so timely. The hubs and I are throwing an Easter lunch for several of our wifeless friends while their spouses are out of town this weekend, and I’ve been looking for a lamb recipe that can cook while I go watch the aforementioned hubs do his orchestra conductor thing. Perfect! Um, how many people does this serve? I’m wondering if I need to commandeer an extra crockpot…

    Julie, where do you get your lamb here in Calgary? I’m always interested to hear which butchers people use and where the best cuts are from. I LOVE lamb – turned many a friend on to it. It’s really a lot less intimidating than people think.

    I made this entire recipe exactly as you instructed and it was a HUGE hit with both me and my husband, who is very picky about his meat and potatoes! We broke in our slow cooker (a wedding present last year) with the leg of lamb, and we enjoyed the leftover potatoes (there weren’t many) with our eggs the next morning. Delicious!!

    Julie!!! What a wonderful combination of flavors! I just got done making the lamb and potatoes and man oh man they are both fantastic… I changed up the lamb a bit, was going to put a red wine in with it but my corkscrew broke at the last minute lol so I added a can of diced tomatoes (around it not on it)… and it was the perfect touch… Ill try it with wine next time 🙂 Again… thank you!

    I noticed you make this in your crockpot. I have a slow cooker, and apparently there can be differences in cooking times for recipes for these two appliances (although I have no idea what the difference is between these machines). Can you tell me if the length of time to cook would be the same or different if made in my slow cooker? Thanks.

    Tried this today – we have just eaten it, the most delicious roast lamb I have ever eaten. Moist, tender, not fatty (lamb can sometimes be a bit fatty) and the potatoes were yummo, even though I couldn’t get Yukon Gold here in Australia. I used red wine because we had a bottle open. Many thanks for the recipe!

    Thought this looked awesome, went and bought lamb, over estimated how big a slow cooker I have. Doh. Amateur hour in the kitchen.

    I dont really have anything here that will deal with the shank so it looks liek I’ll be doing this next time I do weekend lamb. Still going to give teh potatoes a whirl though!

  28. JulieVR
    November 13, 2010 at 6:36 am

    If the leg is sticking out of the slow cooker, just cover the lid (and gaps) with foil – I do it all the time! Otherwise you can do it in the oven – just roast it low -about 300F – for about 3 hours.

  29. thethoughtherder
    November 14, 2010 at 3:24 pm

    Hey, I ended up shortening the leg with the help of a bread knife and some gentle persuading. recipe went really well, very impressed with the results. I would go with a touch less lemon on the potatoes but my girlfriend loved them as they were so a bit of personal taste i guess!

    Already passed your site to some friends, and I’ll certainly be making it again.

    My girlfriend and I thought this recipe sounded amazing. so we made this for thanksgiving today, and unfortunately it tasted horrible. The meat lost all its texture, turned overcooked and had no chewiness at all. The lemon made it really bitter. You could no longer taste the lamb. It was inedible. We should have put it in the oven instead. I hope you guys have better luck with this recipe than we did.

I followed your super recipe, adding a bit of my own, (can’t help myself doing this!) and at the end of 8 hours it looked superb and tasted wonderful. Thanks a million. Will continue to look at your site.

    Well, I’m gonna be making this tomorrow! Its my first time ever making a leg of lamb, and I’m a little crock pot obsessed (Plus, I’m hosting my first really big dinner party, so I’m doing lots of cooking!) I’ll let you know how it works out!

    The first challenge is getting the leg in my 5.5 crockpot, I sent my husband out for the lamb while I was at work, and I didn’t remember *Quite* how big they are, so I’m going to have to bend the shank back to fit it. I’d have asked the butcher to do it, when i saw it, but alas! But considering we once made a queen size box spring turn a corner god never intended a non-flexible thing to turn, I think I can do it!

    Really like this recipe!! I am a newcomer to eating lamb but want to expand my horizons. Made this for Easter with the lemon potatoes. It was delicious and enjoyed by all (most of us not regular lamb eaters) Made it with boneless shoulder as I couldn’t get a leg. Will definitely use this recipe again.

    I’m planning on making this tonight (very excited) but was wondering if you had any good suggestions for gravy to go with this.
    I’ve only used my slow cooker a few times for roast and noticed there’s always lots of yummy useful juice leftover, is this the case with the lamb and how can I turn this into tasty gravy?!

    April 22, 2012 at 7:05 pm

    Amazingly good! Had a small leg (2lbs) that I didn’t feel like getting into to butterfly and havent had success slow roasting legs before. This turned out so well. I have a recipe that is the same marinade for a large butterflied leg on the grill as the rub but also calls for hot sauce (frank’s) so I threw a few shakes into the liquid and over top. Delish!

    Lemon potatoes were outstanding! I’ll do them in a metal pan next time so I can get them browner but they were a hit! and will be a new staple in our house. Glad my google search worked out so well! Thank you!

    This recipe was phenomenal! The lemon potatoes were out of this world! SO good I had to make them two nights in a row! 🙂 next time I think we’ll cook the lamb for a little less than 8 hrs because both my husband and I like our meat a little rarer, but still – it was amazing and will definitely be making it again. Thanks for a great recipe!

    I was looking for slow cooker recipes for lamb and I found yours. I have ad yesterday for Chistmas Eve, with the lemon potatoes too it came out great. Thank you so much for your help, this is my first recipe from your blog but it won’t be the last for sure,

    Wow Julie… Just wow. I’ve been cooking lamb roast sine I was 12. I don’t think I could ever get enough lamb. After working in a greek restaurant I fell in love with the traditional slow cooked lamb. I remove it as it falls off the bone and grill it slighly before serving with the lemon potato. Just devine. We usually have a starter of grilled halloumi on a bed of tomato with oregano and lemon- a must!

    Thanks for all the great tips!

    Loved the potatoes, I had to stop myself from eating them. I already had a lamb preseasoned so we had that too, but I cooked it in the crockpot for 8 hours so it was nice and tender. I will try your recipe because all of the reviews sound like I should definitely try it!!! Overall it was so good and I will make it again.

    The first time I made this, I nearly wept it was so delicious. The garlic, lemon zest and rosemary with salt & pepper coating is remarkable after it all soaks into the meat and the fat drips away. Thank you Julie! I’ve got another one prepped for tomorrow morning in the fridge in a slow-cooker liner soaking in the marinade.

    I followed the recipe for the most part, and did my first leg of lamb. Two changes to it… I cut up a few medium sized onions and put in at the start. Then about 2 hours before done, I took 3 Yukon Gold potatoes, halved them, then cut each into three. I decided I had to sample it before putting it all in containers to have tomorrow. Wow, what a great taste!!
    Thank you Julie!!! 😀

    I followed your instructions for cooking my bone-in leg of lamb, $34 worth to be exact, and it was horrifically over cooked. The flavor was nice but it was dry and pretty tough. Lamb only need to be 135 degrees in the center to be medium and this one registered 200 after 6 hours of cooking. I’m really glad I didn’t leave it in for 8. I accept cash, check, or credit.

    Yes, I have the same question as Sue… many would you guess this serves? Maybe if this is as good as everyone says, I need to buy another slow cooker so I can make two for leftovers! Yum.

    How can that be?
    I wil be taking a photo of it to put up on my Shot a Day for 365 days

    Sue and Barbara

    Rule of thumb.
    Per person:
    Meat on the bone 500 g
    Meat, no bone, 300g

    This may very depending on what else you are having but is a very good guide.

    This was amazing, the lamb was SO tender! It was the first time I made a roast in the slow cooker. I used a deboned, rolled leg of lamb because I have a small slow cooker, I marinated it overnight, browned it in a frying pan, used the stock to deglaze the frying pan, I rested the lamb on a bed of baby potatoes, poured in the stock from the pan and my house smelt amazing all day while it cooked. Thank you for giving me the confidence to use my slow cooked to make a roast!

    We made lamb for Thanksgiving this year in lieu of Turkey – best decision made for the holiday. We used your recipe and the lamb fell completely off the bone! There was no lamb-y aftertaste because of the spices/herbs used and the leftovers were gone by the next day. If I could I would post a picture. Thank you!!!

    Made this for Xmas dinner tonight, and nothing but oohs and ahhs all around. We kept the potatoes lemon-free, not to over do it, but still roasted with rosemary. delicious. The cup+ of red wine used as the base liquid of the crock pot dish helped start a lovely gravy, when the essence combined. We used a horseradish sauce on the side with the lamb, very good mix. All around one hellova recipe. The meat literally fell off the bone. For 7 people, a 6lb piece of leg of lamb more than sufficed. There’s a nice leftover for tomorrow. Cheers

    English friends supplied us with a crockpot, since then it is our favourite way of cooking. Being Dutch, lamb is not something we easily chose for dinner as it is for you, Brittish, but it is delicious! I will definitely put this on the table next time we have friends over.

    Well, one quick google search and here I am with my Easter plan for dinner next Sunday! We love our crockpot, it frees us up to make side dishes and this lamb recipe sounds like it will be moist and flavorful.
    We typically make lamb steaks with a Mediterranean rub of spices (from Safeway of all places!) by searing in a cast iron skillet and then finishing them in the oven, but I think the holiday calls for some other preparation – we will be a group of 5.
    Can’t wait to try this out!

    Love these recipes. My family requests it every year for Easter. I find it is the best way to cook lamb. The seasonings make it so tasty and the slow cooking make the meat fall off the bone. Thank you for posting.

    I’m using a boneless lamb leg weighing about a pound and three quarters. WIll that impact the cooking time or is it still within the 6-8 hour range?

    Julie, my wife has been ill for 4 years, so I volunteered to cook for Thanksgiving. Everyone was terrified. At 77 I read instructions carefully, so I followed your recipe for leg-of-lamb in the slow-cooker and roasted lemon potatoes to the letter. The best comment of the dinner? “You could open a restaurant with this meal”.

    I am hooked on this AMAZING lamb recipe…then I recently convinced my 97 year old father to try lamb even though he had long-claimed to hate it. Now he is hooked too – he is lamb fiend, always wanting this lamb! LOL Thank you for this recipe Julie, it tastes like heaven on earth. And you gave a very old man a new experience that is bringing him great pleasure.

    before the re-birth in the bikini was solidified in society
    through the introduction with the string bikini

    will always be great designers banking on women’s basics, such as Calvin Klein and DKNY; however, with savants like Alexander Mc – Queen not
    holding back, there is more in the future in women’s fashion clothes for 2010.

    Just a comment on the potatoes. First I’ve been making this recipe for years. Love it every time. The only thing I do different is add all the seasoning to the oil first, mix then pour and toss over potatoes.

    Well done Julie!!!
