slow cooked greek lamb thermomix recipe

  1. A family favourite, has been cooked the last few easters. Kids love it in the pita bread on the site with the tzatzaki..

  2. 5 stars
    My 15 year old son would likely eat this entire meal to himself in 1 sitting. If I’m lucky enough to have some, I use leftovers in the Pita, and it’s as heavenly as ever! I’m about to make it again for the 186538th time, total family favourite!

  3. Sooo good! I’ve made this for guests a few times & they are always super impressed. I like to serve mine with Greek salad , roast potatoes & tzatziki. Then if there’s any leftovers it gets used up in wraps or on top of homemade pizzas’s. Oh and FYI this makes the BEST gravy!!

      1. You sure can slow cook in the oven. Have the oven on about 150 degrees and cook for about 6 – 7 hours in a tray covered with foil. 🙂

  4. I don’t have a slow cooker and i usually slow cook 2kg of lamb shoulder in my le creuset casserole in the oven. How long would you recommend slow roasting the lamb in the oven please? (I’m a terrible cook!)

  5. Wow made this last night to serve with salad on a hot summer night and it was delicious! Didn’t marinade overnight as it was a last minute decision to cook and one hour in the pressure cooker it was done to perfection

  6. Wow. Ok. Didn’t marinade overnight, and cooked with suggested marinade in slow cooker for 4 hrs( bone in)! Fantastic meal, great flavours. Walking into the house to those aromas. Brilliant. So how good will this be when I plan better and do it as suggested with recipe. Happy place. Thankyou

  7. So I said to my family. ” this should have marinated overnight and cooked slowly for 7 hours. “. Quick marinade with amazing flavours , slow cooker on high and 5 hours later an amazingly great result.. Can’t wait to do it as per recipe. Great feed

  8. I made this the other night for a quick easy meal to serve to guests. It was so much of a hit that the guests are bringinh around another leg of lamb so that I can make another one for them. Has a beautiful flavour,

  9. Made this for the first time tonight and it was amazing! My 3yr old (who we can rarely get to eat any type of meat) demolished it which speaks volumes! Thank you for the great recipe.

  10. Made this last night using two 1.5kg bone in roasts. I cooked them for 7 hours. Turned out great. Held together like a roast (which is what I wanted). Would cook another hour I think for fall off the bone and use in wraps. Will make again, Fussy brother enjoyed it (and he’s a massive lamb fan!)

  11. I have just made this for the 1st time & it was a winner!! Marinade was easy to make from staple ingredients & pleased my fussy family. This will be on my regular menu. Thank you Nikalene!

  12. This is the second time making this dish and while we remembered enjoying it last time, tonight it was to die for. I had a 3kg bone in shoulder that wouldn’t fit in my slow cooker so followed all the steps but placed in an oven baking tray, covered with foil, 6 hours @150C. Absolutely melt in your mouth lamb and gorgeous flavor.

  13. Amazing flavours meat was so tender and juicy. I served this with skinnymixers sweet potato mash will give the pita wraps a go for tomorrow’s dinner using the left over lamb.

  14. The ‘best gravy ever’ comment is no exaggeration. Definitely top three anyway!

    My lamb was a little dry in some parts when I pulled it out of the slow cooker (possibly because I left it in for about 2 hours longer than suggested) but the gravy well & truly covered my mistake. Mmmmmmm

    Will be making again… and again… and again

  15. This is only lamb that my 16yr old daughter will eat. She can’t stand the smell, or taste…but this has now been made by me 3 times, and every time, she goes out of her way to pile it on her plate. Yes, she knows it’s lamb. Definitely a stand out here… I cook mine in the oven 100°C, for 5-5.5hrs, covered in foil. Beautiful!! Thank you Nik

  16. By far the best roast lamb I have cooked. Marinade was super easy to make, with regular ingredients. The meat just fell straight off the bone. I added corn flour to thicken the juices at the bottom of the slow cooker to make a beautiful gravy. So so flavoursome. Well done again skinny mixers! 😘

  17. Wow, this recipe is a winner! I used deboned and rolled lamb shoulder and cooked this for Christmas Day lunch…hands down everyone’s favourite, no one could fault it. Looking forward to cooking it again and again.

  18. I made this yesterday and it was wonderful. I then left the bones in the slowcooker with the liquid and added more water to cover the bones and let it cook for another 12 hours and now have a beautiful lamb bone broth. Thanks for another great recipe 🙂
