  • 2 kg Leg of Scotch Lamb bone in for more flavour
  • 4 sprigs of rosemary
  • 3 cloves of garlic
  • 1 lemon sliced
  • 2 tbsp of olive or rapeseed oil
  • 1 litre lamb stock
  • salt and freshly ground black pepper


  • Pierce the leg of lamb all over with the tip of a sharp knife.
  • Push pieces of rosemary into half of the holes and slivers of garlic into the other half making sure you distribute them evenly.
  • Place the lamb into a large plastic bag, add the lemon slices and the remaining rosemary sprigs and the oil into the bag and season well.
  • Seal the top of the bag with a clip and place in the fridge.
  • Place the bag in the fridge overnight.
  • In the morning, empty the contents of the bag into your slow cooker or crockpot and add a litre of lamb stock.
  • Cook on low for 8 hours.


I finished the joint off in the oven for 20 minutes at 180C, just to crisp it up, but that is optional.
