Substituting lamb leg for shoulder

Hi, I have a slow cooked lamb shoulder recipe that I enjoyed but found rather fatty. Could I substitute a similar sized lamb leg instead for the same cooking time please? Thanks in advance.

Hello kdj13,

You can slow cook leg of lamb. I’m not sure of your recipe but I would say as long as it has some stock, water or wine in with the lamb during cooking it should be fine.

Kind regards
