Super Easy Roast Lamb


January 10, 2017

Simple, super tender & moist roast lamb

  • Prep: 5 mins
  • Cook: 7 hrs
  • Yields: Depending on size, would serve 4-5 people


Leg of Lamb

1-2 tablespoon of Masterfoods 'Lamb herbs' from the bottled herb section of your supermarket.

If you can't purchase this the contents are made up of Rosemary 59%, Garlic, Marjoram, Thyme, Oregano, Mint 5%, Basil.


1Place the Leg of Lamb into your slow cooker and sprinkle generously with lamb herbs

2Cook on low for 7-8 hrs depending on size

3So simple & it always turns out super tender & moist

4Be extra careful when lifting it out as it will be so tender that it will just fall apart!!!

5Enjoy 😊

Just placed my seasoned 1.6 kg leg of lamb in SC on low, do you suggest time frame of approx 7/8 hrs. First time doing this in SC, looking for a good result. 🤞🤞😊

So yummy, and easy!
My roast was so big it only just fit in! Cooked for 9.5 hours on low, would have loved another half hour but we were starving! I also added potatoes wrapped in foil around the roast, which I crisped in the oven for 20 minutes before serving to crisp them up. Will defiantly do again!

Have done 2 roast lambs now, first time i used whole potatoes, carrots cut in half, and some pumkin as a bed, then laid the roast on top of them, added 500ml veg stock, smothered the roast in rosemary and lamb herbs was perfect! Second time done the same but didnt use veg & used less liquid. Melt in your mouth 🤤🤤

Yes you can add them at the start too
Around the base of the meat is fine
Remember they will be soft like result as they sit in the juices but some like to then crisp them in the oven 🙂
Alternatively you can add them on top in foil parcels to keep them dryer or even beside your roast in an oven bag

I am wanting to give this one a go. I would like to do sweet potato, plain potato and pumpkin. Do I put them all in with the meat at the same time? If so…on top or underneath?

Ideally a longer lower cooking time is best 🙂

I want to do this for lunch on the weekend… Would it be okay on high for 4 hours?

Don’t use a tea towel … that’s for baking and breads and cake type recipes 🙂

Do you use a tea towel

I’d still do at least 6hrs on low for a tender result

Thanks for this recipe Jenny, it is now the only one I use for my lamb legs, just so easy! Always turns out perfect and we love it!

It’s not “mushy” unless you mash it up or something? It’s just a really tender roast lamb 🙂

Does this turn out really mushy like baby food or just tender

I didn’t have the right spice blend so used Tuscan herbs and added a cup of white wine . Delicious!

The meat will release a tonne of it’s own liquids during cooking Elaine 🙂

No liquid?

Super Easy – but also Super Tasty
We had this with roast vegies, but it would also be really lovely served in rolls.
