I bought a lovely little boneless leg of New Zealand lamb for Sunday, but I'm nervous about crock potting it now.  I don't want to overcook it and ruin it.  
Yeah we breed them that way over here... imo you can't overcook it in a crock pot - worst thing that could happen, is it will fall of the bone... Oh wait - it doesn't have one But seriously, it should be fine...just beautifully tender & tasty?!

I made a shoulder of lamb yesterday for lunch. The night before I made slits all over the fatty part of the joint and rubbed it all over with chopped garlic, rosemary, EVOO, salt and a little red pepper flakes. The next morning I pre-heated the oven to 200C and made a trivet of carrot halves, onion wedges, and whole garlic cloves (skin on) in the bottom of the baking dish, plonked the lamb on top of this, poured over 500ml of chicken stock, and 250ml of red wine. I then tightly covered the baking tin and lamb tightly with two layers of foil and put in the oven (immediately reducing the temp to 170C). This I roasted for just under 4 hours. Once ready, I stripped the meat from the bone and kept warm in a serving dish whilst I made gravy with the pain juices, some seasoning and a little sugar free damson jam. We had it with roast potatoes (for those allowed), roast parsnips/sweet potatoes/butternut squash, peas, brocolli and steamed carrots. Everyone loved it, it was sooooo good!

I buy leg of lamb already removed from the bone by my butcher.  I clean and cut the meat into small cubes and prepare it regularly as part of stir-fry (my stand-by fast food).  I dust the meat with onion and garlic granules, powdered ginger and curry powder and cook it in minutes in my stainless steel skillet lightly spread with liquid lecithin.  I add a small dab of ghee to the pan just before tossing the meat in.

The paleo cookbook WELL FED has an excellent recipe for Rogan Josh that can use lamb.  Check the spices used for your avoids/beneficials.  Tender and juicy and even better warmed up the next day or so.

  Yes, New Zealand lamb is a treat here.  It is expensive but considered very fine.  I actually have it in the oven now, and a pan of mixed root veggies, too.  I couldn't bring myself to crockpot it.  It smells wonderful, I'm getting sooo hungry!

I'm sure it smells different than a beef roast.  Are you OK?  It wasn't a BAD kind of funny was it?  I hope you're not sick now.  

It's funny, I think beef smells a little different now that I'm more used to lamb and turkey.
