What’s For Dinner? Slow Cooked Half Leg of Lamb

Who doesn’t love a roast dinner on a Sunday?


Slow cooked Lamb

Lamb is my absolute favourite. I don’t cook it very often as it is expensive but with a family of fairly fussy eaters this is something I can cook that everyone will eat. This is another simple recipe! It’s the rest of the roast dinner that seems to take all the hard work.


Ingredients needed:

Half a leg of lamb

1 teaspoon of Bisto Lamb Gravy granules

1 teaspoon of Mint Sauce

1 mug of boiling water.



So…. dust off that Slow Cooker. You need to put the lamb into the slow cooker. Boil the kettle and add one teaspoon of Bisto Lamb gravy granules and one teaspoon of mint sauce into a mug. Fill the mug to the top with boiling water and stir. Pour all over the lamb in the slow cooker and put the lid on.



Put on High for 4 hours or Low of 8 hours and turn half way through if possible. The lamb will be moist and falling off the bone when ready. It is so beautiful! Serve with all the favourite Roast dinner trimmings and your mouth will love you forever.  It is such an easy recipe and so delicious!

What’s for Dinner: Slow Cooked Gammon in Apple Juice

I love using the slow cooker for a variety of meals! This one in particular is a firm fave in our house!

It is ridiculously easy too which is always a bonus! You literally need 3 things:

A Slow Cooker

A Gammon Joint

250ml of Apple Juice

Pour in the apple juice, add the gammon, put on HIGH for 4 hours or LOW for 8 hours.

Simple as that!! The meat is so moist and tender when its ready! Thats why in the below picture it looks like I am unable to carve meat… haha! I can but it literally falls apart when I put a knife to it! So delicious!

You could have this in so many ways! With a jacket potato and salad, in an omelette, with baby potatoes and veg, Egg and Chips…… the list is endless!

We had ours with a rice called Nasi Goreng which is an Indonesian Fried Rice. It was absolutely beautiful! I have also cooked Gammon in Orange juice too and it is beautiful too but we slightly prefer the Apple.

I hope you enjoy this recipe! Let me know what you think or if you have any other suggestions to cook Gammon in!
