Slow Cooked Crock Pot Roman Lamb
540 mins (prep 60, cooking 480)
12 ingredients
10-14 servings
An original & very old recipe from Italian friends in Northern Italy - this recipe has been handed down through the ages & is an absolute show stopper for large family gatherings! After the initial browning of the meat, it cooks beautifully in a slow cooker or crock pot, slowly fragrancing the kitchen with a mouthwatering aroma! I have given the quantities that were originally given to me - that is LARGE, up to 14 hungry people! The recipe can be halved for a smaller gathering however. The legs of lamb I used were about 2 kilos each, that's about 4 1/2 lbs.If you are unsure about boning a leg of lamb yourself, ask your butcher to do it for you OR use ready boned & diced mixed lamb meat. Roman lamb is best served with plain steamed potatoes to mop all those yummy juices up with & some fresh green beans. It is also BRILLIANT as a pie filling afterwards - that's if you have any left!
