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
