With fall weather starting to settle in, my mind naturally drifts to hearty roasts, soups, and stews. I’m a big fan of the slow cooker for this job, as the meal practically cooks itself once you’ve added the ingredients.

Searing off the meat before you add it is an extra step that’s well worth the time because it helps to develop an extra layer of delicious flavor. Using a boneless leg of lamb will make this recipe cook a bit faster. However, if all you can find is a bone-in leg of lamb, that will work, too!

Can You Make Leg of Lamb in the Instant Pot?

Absolutely. You should sear the outside of the leg of lamb first to help develop some flavor. Use ghee for searing because it has such a high smoke point. From there, add all the ingredients to the Instant Pot. Set the timer to 90 minutes manual (high). When it’s done, allow the pressure to release naturally for at least 15 minutes.

Ingredients

  • 3 lb boneless lamb leg roast
  • Generous pinch each sea salt and pepper
  • 1 tbsp ghee
  • 1/2 cup chicken broth low-sodium if possible
  • 6 cloves garlic finely chopped
  • 3 sprigs rosemary chopped
  • 3 sprigs thyme stripped off stalk
  • 1/3 cup stone ground mustard
  • 2 carrots peeled and chopped
  • 2 parsnips peeled and chopped
  • 2 Yukon gold potatoes peeled and chopped
  • 1 rutabaga peeled and chopped
  • 1/2 tsp sea salt
  • 1/4 tsp black pepper

Instructions

  1. First, you’re going to sear the lamb roast to develop a nice golden crust. That’s where the flavor really shines. To do that, dry the lamb very well with paper towel and season with a couple generous pinches of salt and pepper. Heat a cast iron skillet over high heat, then add the ghee. You want the pan smoking hot. If not, the meat will steam instead of sear. Try for 3 to 4 minutes a side until you get most of the roast seared. Remove the meat from the pan (I put it on a plate), then reduce the heat to medium, and add the chicken broth, scraping up the brown bits from the bottom of the pan.
  2. Place the roast in the slow cooker.
  3. In a small bowl, mix the garlic, rosemary, thyme and mustard. Pour it on top of the lamb and use your hands to coat the meat with the mixture.
  4. Toss the chopped root veggies (carrots, parsnips, potato and rutabaga) with salt and pepper, and arrange them around the meat. Pour the chicken broth from when you deglazed the pan on top of the veggies.
  5. Cook on low for 8 to 10 hours.
  6. Serve with a green salad or veggie of your choice for a complete meal.
