Made this Greek roast lamb and it was lovely, husband couldnโ€™t believe that it was cooked in the slow cooker๐Ÿ˜‰ it has been added to my ever growing list of recipes ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿผ

You could use either but I tend to think this may be dried

In regards to the stock,do you just pour this over the lamb? As there is no mention of what to do with this in the method.
