Boneless leg of lamb smeared with a simple mint glaze and cooked in the slow cooker until tender and juicy, this slow cooker boneless leg of lam with mint is a winner.

  4. Place your boneless leg of lamb on top of the onion rings.
  5. In a small mixing bowl, stir together the mint jelly, fresh mint, garlic, rosemary, salt, and pepper.
  6. Smear the mint mixture on all sides of the meat.

Tender and delicious. Everyone loved it. This would only serve 16 dedicated & disciplined Weight Watchers members. My family ate a lot more than 4 ounces because it was so good.

Now that I know to cook boneless leg of lamb in the slow cooker, I will experiment with different rubs and seasonings.
