Lamb in the Slow Cooker (Instant Pot Recipe): Pull-Apart Soft!!

Print the recipe here:

1 leg of lamb cut into 3 pieces
2-3 tablespoons olive oil
Salt, to taste (approx. 1/2 teaspoon per pound)
black pepper, to taste
1/2 cup- 3/4 cup fresh lemon juice
2-3 cups water
2 teaspoons ground coriander
1 heaping teaspoon ground cumin
2-3 tablespoons grated garlic
1 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes (optional)
1 heaping teaspoon dried oregano or thyme
Optional: a sprig or 2 of rosemary
Serve with: Rice, pita, salad, and/or tzatziki sauce
Wash the lamb and pat dry. Trim excess fat and place the lamb on a tray.

Drizzle with olive oil and rub all over the lamb. Season both sides with some salt and pepper.

The lamb can be browned in the Instant Pot, in an air-fryer, or under the broiler. My favorite way to brown lamb is using the air-fryer method. Preheat the air-fryer to 400 °F and brown the lamb 10-15 minutes per side until golden all around.

To brown lamb in the Instant Pot, set it to the saute setting and brown until golden all around. About 20 minutes total.

Add all of the remaining ingredients to the instant pot and set it to the slow-cooker setting for about 14 hours. Halfway through cooking, flip the pieces of lamb over for even cooking and add more water if needed.

The lamb is ready when it is falling off the bone.

Taste and adjust the seasoning if needed.

Serve over a pita, with Rice pilaf, and/or a salad with lots of tzatziki on the side. Kali Orexi!

Store the leftovers along with their juices in an airtight container in the refrigerator. Warm through in a pan and serve.
