I have a question about the recipe "Abbacchio al Forno (Roast Lamb with Potatoes)" from Emiko. do you think it would be possible to adapt this recipe for a slow cooker? I'd finish the potatoes in the oven, but what liquid and how much would you suggest?

Hopefully Emiko will answer your question, but if not, here's an article to get you started. Slow cookers all cook differently, so keep your thermometer for the meat handy. I have 3 slow cookers and they all behave differently.

I'm afraid I must dissent. The name itself "...all forno" means in the oven. This is a Roman classic that's hard enough to do right as it is. A slow cooker wouldn't help.
