This was terrific! I braised a 4# boneless leg of lamb for just a bit over 6 hours and it was ready. As promised, it was spoon tender and delicious. I added some parsnips (a personal favorite) but otherwise followed the recipe exactly. I plan on using some of the leftovers by chopping up some meat, adding the appropriate seasonings and making Gyros. I won't be exactly the same thing but should be very tasty. Thanks for sharing this recipe, I'll be making it again, for sure.

This was wonderful! We had it for dinner on its own, but like this it definitely needed more veggies and starch, so next time I might try with the side suggestions given here. The lamb is very tender and flavourful all the way through.

This was really lovely FT, thank you. All the family enjoyed it too. I didn't use a leg of lamb but instead used shanks and added extra vegies so all I had to do was serve it up when I got home.

Absolutely gorgeous!!! I made this with lamb shanks instead and it was wonderful. I made exactly as is except for adding extra vegetables as this was a main meal for us and I usually serve mash potato and am trying to cook with less starchy carbs in the evening. I pulled the shanks out and had to hold the meat on the bone so I could take a photo as it was so falling apart. I have added not the most attractive photo of the backside of the shank just so you can see how tender these were. This was the most awesome recipe French Tart and I will try this again with a leg of lamb. I was only making for 2 tonight, but what a great way to cook a leg when you have guests. Fantastic!!!!

absolutely superb. I used lamb shanks in the crockpot and ohh was it good. Scaled the recipe down for 2 and enjoyed every bite. It literally cut with a spoon and i used the same spoon to eat it with

Yes, this was easy! Incredibly easy -- and very delicious. I used the crock-pot alternative, and nothing could have been simpler. I did manage to forget to add the armagnac at the end -- even though we bought some yesterday just for this recipe! This may become my preferred way to cook lamb -- easy to do and great result. What's not to like? Thanks for posting this.
