Slow Cooker Leg of Lamb

I really like using the crockpot.  I can set things up, go to work, run errands and come back to dinner.  This time I'm making a leg of lamb. I find that the lemon gives a little bit of a kick.  Enjoy!



4-5 Lbs Leg of Lamb, deboned
1 cup water
7 - 10 Medium Sized Red Potatoes 
1 lb Baby Carrots
1 medium onion
1 stalk of Celery
1 lemon 
2 teaspoon Kosher Salt
2 teaspoon black pepper
2 teaspoons garlic powder
1 teaspoon Rosemary


1) Juice the lemon, set aside
2) Zest the lemon (use a cheese grater to pulverize the rind of the lemon)
3) Combine the Salt, Pepper, Garlic Powder Rosemary and Lemon Zest
4) Coat all sides of the Lab with the mixture
5) Dice Onion and Celery
6) Quarter the potatoes
7) add water, lemon juice, Onions, Celery, Potatoes and Roast to crockpot
8) Cook for 7 hours on low (I usually do the first 1.5 hours on high and then 4 hours on low)
