Happy Easter everyone! Have you decided what to cook on Monday?
This tender and juicy lamb leg cooked in a slow cooker with herbs and spices is super easy and simple — you'll only need a few common ingredients. Apart from being delicious, lamb is perfect for the keto diet.
This recipe requires a slow cooker or crock pot but you can even use a Dutch oven or you could bake it in the oven on low, covered with a foil, for 3 to 4 hours.
If you have a busy lifestyle, you should consider getting the Instant Pot which does both slow cooking and pressure cooking. It's such a time saver and it's perfect for batch cooking. I use it on a regular basis to cook meat I get from my local farm: lamb, mutton, beef and pork.
A slow cooker is not just convenient but you'll also save money, as it's great for cooking inexpensive yet delicious cuts of meat such as brisket, pork shoulder or oxtail.
