Slow cooking is a great method of cooking when you want a hot, delicious dinner without a lot of work. Preparation time is minimal and it allows you to go about your daily business while your dinner is cooking. Lamb is a nutritional meat, high in zinc and iron. It also has a good amount of protein and is relatively low in calories and fat, though it is a red meat. Lamb is high in B vitamins and a great source of carnitine, an amino acid needed for energy. Roasting a leg of lamb in a slow cooker results in a moist, tender piece of meat. It can be served alongside potatoes, rice, pasta or vegetables.

Step 1

Preheat a cast iron skillet with 2 tbsp. olive oil over medium heat.

Step 2

Season the lamb with salt and pepper to taste.

Step 3

Brown the lamb on all sides, using tongs, for approximately five or six minutes.

Step 4

Slice the onion, cut the celery into chunks and place them on the bottom of the slow cooker.

Step 5

Pour the white wine and 1 cup of the vegetable stock over the vegetables.

Step 6

Evenly sprinkle half of the minced garlic and half of the rosemary into the liquid.

Step 7

Put the lamb into the slow cooker on top of the vegetables and pour the rest of the vegetable stock over the top of the lamb.

Step 8

Sprinkle the lamb with the rest of the garlic and rosemary.

Step 9

Cover and cook on high for three to four hours, until the internal temperature of the lamb reaches 145 degrees F.
