Wow, this was surprisingly good! I don't always love chunks of meat cooked in a crockpot, because sometimes they're too bland for my tastes, but I liked this a lot. I do have to add the disclaimer that the meat without the juices spooned over it was a bit bland to me, but the meat with the juices is lovely and flavorful. Loved the lemony veggies underneath, too! Due to time constraints and not trusting DH with a potentially undercooked crockpot meal :P , I had to alter the cook time a bit. Instead of 2 hours on high and 4 on low, I just left it on low overnight (approx. 8 hours). When I got up and checked it, the meat was falling-apart tender, and the veggies were nice and soft. The veggies probably would've been fine cooked for a bit less time, because they were very soft, but the lamb was perfect. Oh, and I used boneless leg of lamb because DH and I are both somewhat picky about meat with bones. I'll have to whip this one out again when the weather gets cold. Thanks for posting :)!

I am so glad I made preserved lemons back when the Tour began! They added such a lovely touch in this dish. And it didn't hurt that it was an all-encompassing meal. I have enough left for several more meals! Thnx for sharing your recipe, lindseylcw. Made for the Voracious Vagabonds of ZWT 6.
This makes for a very, very tasty meal, & that comes from one who doesn't usually care for lamb! I think what did it for me, though, was the combo of garlic & lemon, & I was generous with both since I used large cloves of garlic & the lemon was rather large! This is one of those meals that I might even consider making for company another time! A definite thanks for sharing the recipe! Made & reviewed during the ZINGO part of ZWT6]
We love eating lamb in this house and this was a great and super easy meal. Different flavors that I usually use, so it made a great change that got good reviews in this house!! Thanks for posting it!! ZWT6
This was a amazing meal, I used lamb shanks and as you say it just fell off the bone just the way I like my lamb. I used Greek Seasoning Mix#425441 for my seasoning and I can't recommend it highly enough, I cooked them for 2 hours on high and 2hours on low as you say crock pots are all different. This meal was good enough for a posh dinner, it had all the flavour of Greece with that distant flavour of lemon, a truly amazing dish. Made for ZWT#6 2010 Thank you so much for posting.
A wonderfully flavoursome and most unusual way to cook lamb; well I've never cooked it quite like this anyway! We loved the blend of citrus, garlic and Greek herb flavours and how moist and tender the lamb was. I enjoyed some of what was left in the yummiest of sandwiches (and it was just as delicious at room temperature) and I put the rest into what was one very tasty omelette. :) Thank you so much for sharing this super recipe. I'll certainly be making it again. Made for Newest Zaar Tag.
