"I purchased a leg of lamb roast from the store recently but had no idea on how I'd cook it. After reading ideas here on Allrecipes, I came up with my own marinade. While I made this in a conventional oven, it could also be made in a slow cooker on the slow setting for 7 to 8 hours time). Hope it's a hit! There was enough marinade left that I threw it over some chicken tenders for tomorrow's dinner." — Robertjm

I don't like lamb as a rule, but we were given a leg of lamb by the neighbor for whom I make jalapeno jelly (long story). I made the lamb in the slow cooker, didn't have marjoram, and used cooking wine instead of the lime juice I was fresh out of. I even liked it, and had a 2nd piece after the reluctant taste test to see if it was done. Thank you All Recipes and Robertjm. I'd post a picture but it's probably all gone by now. Blessings.
It was perfectly good but didn't blow me away. I was hoping it would be tastier.
