5 cloves garlic
1 tbsp olive oil
2 tsp dried mint
2 tsp cumin
1 tbsp brown sugar
1 tsp smoked paprika

  3. Place lamb with marinade in a slow cooker on high heat. Add bouillon cube. Cook for 6-8 hours .
  4. Pre-heat oven to 190C. Prepare a medium sized roasting tray with aluminium foil. Place lamb on foil and fold foil up and over on all sides to prevent any liquid from leaking out.
