Redcurrant and Honey Glazed Lamb (Crock Pot)
I tagged this to make for a game I am involved in, even though I do not own a crock pot. I cooked a 2.7kg leg pf lamb in a slow oven for 6 hours and the end result was fall apart, really tender cooked lamb. The pan juices along with the glaze made the most amazing gravy and all my guests absolutely raved about it.

4-5lbs Leg of lamb
4-5 Tablespoons red currant jelly
3 Tablespoons honey
2 Tablespoons Dijon mustard
2-4 Garlic cloves, peeled and crushed or 3 teaspoons garlic powder
Black pepper


1. If the leg of lamb is too big for your crock-pot, cut through the joint between the main leg and shank.

2. Put 2 tablespoons water into the crock-pot and place the lamb inside.

3. Spoon the honey, Dijon mustard and redcurrant jelly over the top of the lamb.

4. Sprinkle the crushed garlic/powdered garlic, salt & black pepper over the top of the lamb.

5. Cook on high for at least 6 hours and up to 8 hours – YES, on high! If it is a 4lb to 5 lb leg of lamb, these are the perfect timings – it falls off the bone and is moist and tender.

6. About 30 minutes before serving, carefully ladle most of the juices out of the crock pot and into a large mixing jug. Allow the juices to cool and skim the fat that rises to the surface.

7. Place the juices into a saucepan and bring to the boil, boil vigorously until it has reduced by about a half – you now have the most wonderful gravy or sauce to serve alongside the lamb!

8. Take the lamb out and allow to “rest” for about 10-15 minutes before carving and falling in love!

I served ours with roasted potatoes, stuffing balls, roast onion, corn on the cob, yorkshire puddings and broccoli and cauliflower cheese for a scrummy Sunday roast dinner.

Sun-Dried Tomato and Herb Stuffed Leg of Lamb

This was an experiment I did for Easter this year and it turned out very well. I bought the lamb already off the bone and cut it myself before stuffing. But you can ask your butcher to do this for you,he will even cut it ready for stuffing and rolling to make it easier. I made 2 stuffed pork loins as well to serve 10 of us, my lamb was 1.1kg in weight I think it would serve 4-6 people if not making with other meats, along with sides. Just so you know the way I cut my lamb I will explain this here. Mine was already looking like a mini log, I turned it over so it was skin side down on my chopping board. I cut the lamb down the center, leaving about a half inch of meat uncut. I then cut through each half, cutting through the center of each, again not going all the way through. Then I opened it out and pounded it with a meat mallet to even out thickness before spreading stuffing over and rolling back up before securing with kitchen string.


1.1kg Leg lamb, de-boned and sliced open ready to stuff
1/2 Packet sage and onion stuffing mix, made up
1 Shallot, chopped finely
5 Cloves garlic, 3 crushed, 2 sliced thinly
1 Tablespoon rosemary, chopped finely
8 Sun-dried tomatoes, chopped finely
Sage, Rosemary, Thyme, garlic powder and paprika (For sprinkling over top of lamb)


1. Pre-heat oven to 180 degrees Celsius.

2. Open out lamb leg, I pounded with a meat mallet to even out thickness. (Read note above about cutting leg for stuffing.)

3. Heat a little oil in a pan, add crushed garlic, and shallot and cook until shallot has softened.

4. In a bowl combine stuffing mix, garlic/shallot mix, rosemary and tomatoes, spread stuffing evenly over lamb, carefully roll lamb up to form a log roll, secure with kitchen string.

5. Slice slits into top of lamb at intervals, push sliced garlic into slits, sprinkle top with listed herbs.

6. Place in an ovenproof dish and roast for about 1hr 30-45 Min’s or until cooked as desired.

Let meat stand before slicing.
