Easter is just a few weeks away, and we’ve updated this collection of leg of lamb recipes so it now has The BEST Recipes for Leg of Lamb in the Instant Pot or Slow Cooker! You can’t go wrong with lamb for Easter or a spring meal; hope you enjoy.
Easter is coming right up, and it’s time to start narrowing down the menu for Easter dinner! This collection of The BEST Recipes for Leg of Lamb in the Instant Pot or Slow Cooker has so many ideas that I think would make a lovely main dish for a holiday meal.
Of course Slow Cooker Leg of Lamb makes sense because lamb is so delicious when it’s cooked at low temperatures in the oven. But recently I started noticing drool-worthy ideas for Leg of Lamb in the Instant Pot, and I decided I had to update this round-up to give you Instant Pot recipes if you prefer that method. And although the post title says leg of lamb, I’ve included a few recipes for lamb shanks and lamb roasts to give you plenty of options!
I realize the strong flavor of lamb isn’t for everyone, but I love lamb more than any other meat. I think all these recipes sound great, and many have comments on the original blogs from readers who’ve enjoyed the recipe. If you like lamb like I do, check out a few of these ideas and decide which version sounds best to you. (All photos are copyrighted to the blogger who posted the recipe.
