Method

To Slow Cook Lamb

1

Turn the slow cooker on to low to pre-warm while preparing the ingredients.

2

Use a sharp, long, thin-bladed knife to make 12-18 deep slits all over the lamb.

3

Slice each garlic clove in three.

4

Wrap a slice of garlic and a few leaves of oregano or marjoram and rosemary in a sundried tomato half and push into one of the deep cuts.

5

Repeat with remaining ingredients.

6

If wishing to brown the lamb: Heat a dash of oil in a frying-pan and brown the lamb well.

7

Put the lamb into the slow cooker, sprinkle over the sugar and pour the wine around the meat.

8

Cover with the lid and cook on low for 7-8 hours or high for 4-5 hours, until the lamb is well cooked.

9

The lamb can be enjoyed at this time with the juices that have collected from the cooking.

10

Or, you can finish the dish with the remaining ingredients as follows:

11

Remove the lamb to a warm plate, cover and leave to rest.

12

Add the tomatoes, chickpeas if using, olives, artichoke hearts and oregano.

13

Cover and cook on high for 20-30 minutes.

14

Season with salt and pepper.

15

Transfer the lamb to a large meat platter and cover.

16

Allow to rest for 20 minutes before carving.

17

Sprinkle with flaky salt if wished.
