I hate Sunday Roast Dinner……..said no one ever!
But, i’ll tell you what I do hate and thats the amount of time it takes to prep and cook a bloody roast especially when i’m trying to make the most of my weekend or nursing a hangover-it can be a major effort.
So the other weekend I used my trusty slow cooker to do it all for me (well almost everything) here’s how I did it:
Firstly at around 10am, I seared the lamb joint in a frying pan, to brown it off etc.
I then layered up my roast potatoes, carrots and diced frozen onions (to be used in the gravy later on), I placed the lamb on top and filled in any gaps with spare veg. I added a little water so it wasn’t too dry and left the slow cooker on low.I returned about 6 hours later and cranked my slow cooker up to high for a couple more hours.I then finished off the lamb and veg in my oven for a further hour to crisp up.
