Leg of Lamb in the Slow Cooker with Mint, Rosemary & Garlic

One of the most popular search terms people use to get here is “leg of lamb slow cooker”. Apparently I posted about it sometime back in 2008, and there are a great many people who want to know how to cook leg of lamb in the slow cooker. I’m glad to know this – there are few better – or simpler – meals than a melt-in-your-mouth leg of lamb, slow cooked while you go about your day.

If you pick up a leg of lamb – with or without the bone – that has had the shank end trimmed off, it will fit perfectly in a slow cooker. Lamb needs little help – I rubbed mine with chopped fresh mint, rosemary and garlic in no particular quantity, helped along with a glug of olive oil. I let it hang out for a bit, then put it in the slow cooker, put the lid on, and cook it on low for 8 hours. I didn’t even add any liquid – the roast released enough on its own, and all the moisture is contained in the slow cooker, so you don’t have to worry about it cooking off.

To make a quick mint sauce that’s better than any that comes in a bottle, simmer equal parts sugar, rice or white wine vinegar and water – I used 1/3 cup of each – until the sugar dissolves, then add a handful of chopped fresh mint and let it steep. Voila – one minute mint sauce.

Add roasted potatoes + peas. Happy weekend!

Slow Roasted Leg of Lamb with Mint, Rosemary and Garlic


Yields1 Serving

1 leg of lamb, without the shank
a handful of fresh mint, chopped
a few sprigs of fresh rosemary, chopped
a few cloves of garlic, crushed
a glug of olive oil


Pat the lamb dry with paper towels, then combine the mint, rosemary, garlic and enough oil to make a runny paste, and smear it all over the lamb. Sprinkle with salt. If you have time, cover and refrigerate it for a few hours, or overnight.


Heat a large, heavy skillet with a drizzle of oil over medium-high heat and brown the lamb on all sides. Transfer to a slow cooker and cook on low for 8 hours. (If you like, add a glassful of red wine or chicken stock, but it's not necessary - the slow cooker will contain all the juices from the meat and cook beautifully.) Serve hot, with mint sauce.

    Your comment about how the leg of lamb is the most searched recipe made me laugh. Mine is beef and noodles. If you’ve ever been to my blog you realize how funny that is–talk about not the typical thing on my blog.

    that netbooks are still not quite powerful more than enough to be a good option if you generally do jobs that require
    lots of power, like video enhancing. But for net surfing, statement processing,

    This tasted great and was super easy. I’d recommend adding 1/2-1 cup of wine or broth before starting cooking so that the meat gets a true braise and stays a bit more moist. Following the recipe exactly, this came out sliceable, but not fork tender like osso bucco.

    Amazing, I like it! Why didn’t I find it in my Redmond 4502 multicoooker’s cook book – it’s enough old recipe. But in anyway thank you, this meal is one which know everyone.

    Just tried the leg of lamb in the slow cooker recipe for the family Sunday roast – 8 hours and the meat just fell off of the bone, couldn’t believe how tender the joint was compared to roasting in the oven. Thanks for posting the idea.

    Hello! I tried this today ‚Äď I am two hours away from the 8 hour slow cook but the meat is already super tender and the sauce/gravy is so flavourful! So excited to share this with my husband tonight! Thank you!

    Marinating 24 or even 48 hrs is a must!! All my yummy spices were barely tasted, I think due to only 1 hour’s marination. And check it at 4 hrs; I cooked for ‘only’ 6 hrs & it was a bit dry (yes, even in a crockpot on low, with all the juice around it!). Also: use like 4x the rosemary & mint noted above – & more garlic & S&P. (I’m told also that it helps to cut slits & stick some of the paste or at least garlic pieces down inside.) Lemon juice is also very nice addition. Enjoy!

    Delicious! So easy and so flavourful. Didn’t have time to marinate the lamb so was extra generous with the herbs and garlic. This is the only way I’ll be cooking lamb from now on.

    Last week my mother put me on to lamb casserole cooked with mint sauce. I can’t call it anything technical like a glaze or a marinade, she just cooks it with mint sauce! Anyway, I tried it with lamb pieces, made a gravy with flour and mint sauce and casseroled it. It was to die for. Pre-sauced meat, yay. Found your blog when looking for a recipe to do similar with a butterfly leg of lamb. Slightly different cost factor, didn’t want to destroy it by cooking for more than 30 minutes, as recommended by most recipes. It is cooking away in the slow cooker as I write. Hoping it is going to taste as good as it smells. I did do the mint sauce thing with vinegar though as I love the taste. Got sidetracked on your web site instead of working. FYI: I also cooked from The Moosewook Cookbook and The Enchanted Broccoli Forest back in the day. Apart from the amount of butter and salt that I went off, I am now back to similar cooking. I’m 68 and healthy, my partner is 81 and far more alive and kicking than me. He just cooks anything he likes, any way he likes, with as much salt as he likes (I don’t like that bit) and he’s as busy and active as he ever was.
