Slow Cooked Lamb
Mmmmm, this turned out delicious! Absolutely the best lamb I can remember having. I just have to remember that I love slow cooked meat. So tender. Lamb has a tendancy to overcook and become tough easy, but not like this. Here's what I did:
1/2 cup red cooking wine
1 tbsp olive oil
1 tbsp honey
2 cloves garlic (crushed)
1 tbsp dried rosemary
Mix these ingredients together in a small bowl and set aside.
1 lamb roast - I picked a leg roast (no bone), small enough to fit into a crockpot easily
4 cloves of garlic
1 tsp olive oil
Heat a frying pan with at a medium heat with a tsp olive oil. Slice 4 cloves of garlic up into 2mm slice. Poke holes into the meat with a steak knife, insert the garlic slices into the holes. Sprinkle salt and grate pepper all over the roast to season it. Dust it with flour and put in to the heated pan to sear (remember to wear and apron and be ready for spatters!). Turn meat to sear all sides.
Place seared lamb into the crockpot and drizzle your reserved wine mixture over the meat. Place lid on and turn onto low for 8-10 hours.
