Slow Cooker Lamb Roast

Serving lamb is such a treat for me because it's one of my favorite meats. I think people tend shy away from serving lamb because they think it's difficult to prepare and complicated to cook. My slow cooker lamb roast recipe is going to dispel all of those thoughts. All you need is 6 ingredients and your slow cooker does all of the work for you!

Many families only serve lamb roast on special occasions like Easter, but I think it makes a great meal for any occasion.

This recipe is actually perfect for my cook once, eat twice strategy.  The leftovers are super tasty the next day or two with different side dishes or made into tacos, heated in a breakfast hash or tossed into a stew.  One core recipe, two delicious dinners – that is a meal prepping win!

Store any leftover meat in the juices to keep it moist.
