About this recipe: Absolutely melt in the mouth, fall off the bone, lamb! The veg comes out perfect and the gravy afterwards is amazing!


  • Leg of lamb (about £11ish in price)
  • Baby carrots (half a 400g bag)
  • Sprouts (half a 250g bag)
  • New potatoes (half a 750g bag)
  • Red onion (large)
  • Chicken stock cube x1
  • Home made Yorkshire puddings
  • 2 x large eggs
  • 275ml semi skimme milk
  • 125g plain flour
  • 4tbs veg oil


  1. Turn the slow cooker on high to pre-heat
  2. Prepare the veg, cross the sprouts and wash the new potatoes an carrots
  3. Seal the leg of lamb in a frying pan (no need to put oil in the pan)
  4. Place all prepared veg in the bottom of the slow cooker
  5. Place leg of lamb on top of the veg
  6. Make up 1 pint of stock using the chicken stock cube and pour over the lamb and veg
  7. Set the slow cooker to high and leave for 6 hours (i found this best for perfect, melt in the mouth, fall off the bone lamb and perfectly cooked veg)
  8. For the yorkshire puds, mix the egg and milk together and add to the flour and whisk until smooth and coats the back of a spoon
  9. 30mins before the food in the slow cooker is done, heat the oven on 200C (fan assisted)
  10. Put 1tbs of oil in each of the 4 sections of the yorkshire pudding tin and put in the oven until hot
  11. Ladle the batter mix into each section of the tin and cook for 30mins
  12. Serve everything at the same time, and enjoy.


This recipe feeds 2 people with enough meat left over for another meal, also I made 4 fairly large yorkshire puddings and had a little batter mix left over to make pancakes for pudding!!

As I have never used a slow cooker until today, I was a tad dubious, but, I have to say I was thoroughly impressed with the outcome of this meal, my fiance really enjoyed it too. - 09 Feb 2014
