Servings 6


  • 1.5kg boneless lamb roast
  • 100g concentrated tomato paste (low salt)
  • 40g dry ranch seasoning *see notes*
  • 60g dry gravy powder (salt reduced)


  • Remove any netting from lamb and place lamb, raw, into slow cooker
  • Whisk tomato paste with one cup of hot water and pour this over the lamb
  • Combine the ranch powder and gravy powder and sprinkle this over the lamb
  • Cook on HIGH for 7hrs *see notes* turning over half way
  • Remove lamb from slow cooker onto a cutting board and using two forks or a knife and fork, pull the meat apart into thin striips then return this shredded meat to the slow cooker
  • Let meat sit in cooking liquids on LOW for an additional 15mins and it will soak up all that lovely gravy and coat the meat in deliciousness
  • I served with creamy mashed potatoes and chives but it would be equally as nice with your favourite vegetables or even hot chips and/or bread rolls


  • This recipe could instead be cooked longer on low for 10hrs+ but I highly recommend high for pulled lamb as the result is reliably fall apart tender. It melts like butter when you shred it.
  • Dry ranch seasoning, while popular and widely available in America, can be purchased online in Australia or our latest book has the recipe to make your own . It's a delicious blend that I'm using more and more in recipes and you won't regret buying or making some to have on hand to use in future dishes also 🙂

  1. Rich and delicious. Didn’t have the pre-made ranch mix so made my own using directions on the web. I cooked this using a lamb shoulder.

  2. This recipe is the absolute bomb! I love roast lamb, I love lamb obsession but I love this as it’s so versatile. Great with mash and vegetables, great with wraps, great on Turkish bread and done in the air fryer.
