Crockpot Leg of Lamb

I love lamb, but unfortunately, not everyone in my family does.  Sigh...  We had this lamb for dinner on Sunday night, and it was worth it.  Yum :)  Aaron gave it a 6, I gave it an 8, Owen, Sean and Erin gave it a 7, and Noah gave it a perfect 10 :).  This is super simple, and I would've given it a higher score if I hadn't cooked it a little too long in the crockpot.  Here's what I did:

1 boneless leg of lamb
2 sprigs rosemary
2 lemons, juiced
5 garlic cloves, sliced
Salt and Pepper

Trim fat from lamb.  Cut slits in the lamb, and push garlic pieces into it.  Season generously with salt and pepper, rub with the rosemary, then put juice over it.  Cook on low for 5-6 hours (I cooked mine longer and it was too long), then serve.  I think some beef broth and tapioca added to the crockpot would give you some more moisture, and you could have a nice gravy at the end.  I'll try some more variations next time.
