    Meltingly tender lamb with herby garlic and lemon juices, would work well in a slow cooker.

      It was ages since we'd had lamb, and this Mediterranean-style lamb, with its lemon, oregano, olive oil and garlic was just so wonderfully flavoursome. I added a few more herbs - rosemary and sage from a nifty grinder that I've been using in nearly every recipe since I bought it. I followed Blessed*One's lead and, after completing step four, cooked this in my crockpot, for about 5 hours. I also cooked some quarted onions, parsnips and baby carrots with it. The onions were in the pot for the full time; the parsnips and baby carrots I added part way through, and I added a bit more lemon juice when I added them so that they too were drizzled in lemon juice. I also doubled the garlic. Wonderfully flavoursome and SO tender. We enjoyed this for a small family dinner and everyone LOVED it. Thank you for sharing this recipe, lindseyclw!

      Delicious! I followed the directions up until # 4, then I cooked it in a crock pot (I had no need for the string)on high for about 6 hours so it would be done when we got home from church. My shoulder was a little over 5 pounds. This was one of the best meats I've prepared in my crock pot!
