About this recipe: This is one of my favourite ways to cook lamb and came about one day from what I had in the fridge and cupboards we loved it so much we have it at least twice a month now. Plus its the only way I can get my carrot hating partner anywhere near them. I've put serves 4 but that's more two adults and two children
You can use less garlic if you're not garlic fans but even with three it's not too strong.
I made this as set out but put one extra garlic clove in and it was beautiful. We couldn't wait for it so it only got around 6 1/2 hours in the slow cooker. It was still a little pink and lovely and soft-just how we like it. I took the lamb and (most of) the cooking liquid out of the cooker and rested the lamb, while the carrots got a bit longer and the cooking juices got some cornflower to make a wonderful gravy. Lots if it too-I froze the surplus for another time - 30 Nov 2011
Cooked this for Easter sunday - was fantastic!!! Struggled to get the lag to fit in the slow cooker but managed it in the end. As said meat fell off the bone and taste lovely and so very very tender. Will do this again!!! Thank you - 04 Apr 2010
Gorgeous! I added more passata than suggested - avoid adding too much water like I did (although you can remove the lid to reduce at the end if you need to) - 16 Apr 2013
