Slow Cook Grilled Lamb Leg

Grilled Lamb Leg

10 minutes meal prep and let your oven do the rest!

Who doesn’t want to sit down and chill if someone is cooking a meal for you? Yes, this is me feeling lazy to cook today. Winter’s weather is always so miserable, wet and dull. It makes me feel like lying down on the couch do nothing but watch Korean drama.

Not in a mood to cook but still after something decent and delicious? You are going to love this recipe that’s only required 10 minutes prep time!!!!

This grilled lamb leg is a perfect dinner option. Hearty, meaty, yummy and full of protein pairing with some fresh vegetables. One lamb leg can easily feed a family of 4, perfect meal for meat lovers plus super fast to make. 😁

You will need a whole lamb leg, either with or without bone. I personally prefer lamb leg with bone as it add extra flavour to the meat. My lamb leg weighted 1.8kg so this took me close to 3 hours to cook in the oven. Just do the math by using a cooking ratio of every 700g for an hour under a slow cook method. The vegetables I’m using in this recipe is potato, carrot, orange with some onion and garlic. I served this grilled lamb along with some pickles radish and steam green beans, totally optional but I strongly recommend adding some extra vegetables as a side dish to balance out the meal.
