650-700g boneless rolled lamb shoulder

Heaped teaspoon minced garlic

Pepper to taste

Teaspoon of chicken stock powder

1Put garlic, salt, pepper, paprika, chicken stock powder, worcestershire sauce and olive oil in a bowl and combine to make a paste

2Add lamb shoulder to bowl and coat with paste mix, then place into slow cooker bowl (i used a 3.5L for this one)

3Pour vege stock and water mix into bottom of slow cooker

4Cook on low for 6 hours.

5After 6 hours, mix together pepper and roast meat gravy powders with cornflour and aprox 1 cup of boiling water. Once combined pour into slow cooker and stir into the water mix. Cook for further 30mins-1hour until thick and rich. If too thick add a little more water to grt desired gravy consistency.

6To serve, slice meat and then pour gravy over the top.

7I served with steamed broccoli and sweet potato bake

8Can use a larger piece of shoulder as the paste mix is quite generous. Cooking time may vary for larger pieces (up to 8 hours on low).

I tried this tonight. It was so yummy. The only thing I changed was the pepper gravy. I just added more supreme gravy. I thickened up the gravy with about a tbsp of roast meat gravy powder at the end. Served it with potato bake and veggies.

I did this yesterday. It was SO good! I added a teaspoon of dry French Onion soup mix, also.

I cannot believe the beautiful flavour of this roast, a definite new favorite in our household. Even the grumpy teenager said that she enjoyed it, and that NEVER happens lately haha! We used a leg of lamb and the meat was falling apart and soooo good! 🙂
