Slow Cooker Lamb Breast
This slow cooker rosemary lamb breast is just perfect for your Sunday roast, served with all the usual trimmings. The lamb breast is stuffed with a rosemary, garlic and sausagemeat stuffing, rolled and tied with string, and then slow-cooked on a bed of vegetables. The result is an incredibly moist, tender, and well flavoured piece of lamb.
- 1 Lamb Breast boned, rolled (and ready stuffed if your butcher can do this)
- 1 Onion peeled and chopped
- 2 Carrots chopped into large chunks
- 2 Rosemary Sprigs
For the optional stuffing
- 1 Onion chopped
- 2 tbsp Butter
- 1 tsp Rosemary dried or fresh, chopped finely
- 1 tsp Thyme dried or fresh, chopped finely
- 85 g Sausagemeat
- 50 g Breadcrumbs Use dried breadcrumbs from a packet, or fresh if you prefer
- 1 tsp Dried Mint
- 1 Egg
- Salt and Pepper for seasoning.
If you're lucky your lamb breast will have come pre boned, stuffed and rolled by your butcher. If it hasn't, fry the chopped onion (for the stuffing) in the butter for 5 minutes then mix up all the stuffing ingredients in a bowl. Unroll the lamb, spread the stuffing onto the flesh, and then roll up again and secure with string. Lamb breast should always be rolled on the short edge to create a larger roll.
Chop the onion and carrots and place them at the bottom of your slow cooker. Add in the rosemary.
Place your rolled lamb breast on top of the vegetables, season and cook on low for 6-7 hours.
Leave to rest for 30 minutes before cutting into thick slices.

- Ask your butcher to bone, stuff and roll your lamb breast for you. It saves so much time.
- The lamb breast benefits from long slow cooking so don't be tempted to cook it on high.
- If you like a bit more colour on your lamb, once slow-cooked, place it in a roasting tray and roast in a very hot oven for 15 minutes.
- Place peeled potatoes (cut any large potatoes in half) in the slow cooker with the onions and carrots. You'll have a whole meal in one-pot!
- If you prefer not to stuff your lamb breast, you can simply sprinkle some chopped rosemary and garlic onto the unrolled breast and roll it back up again.
