Lamb with sage & prosciutto

1.Place onion, celery, carrot and wine into a 4.5-litre (18-cup) slow cooker.
2.Open out lamb and place on a board, fat-side down. Slice through the thickest part of lamb horizontally, without cutting all the way through. Open out the flap to form one large even piece; season, then scatter over sage and garlic.
3.Roll lamb up to enclose seasoning. Wrap prosciutto around lamb, securing with kitchen string at 2cm (¾-inch) intervals. Transfer lamb to cooker. Cook, covered, on low, about 8 hours.
4.Carefully remove lamb from cooker; cover to keep warm. Strain sauce into a medium saucepan. Discard solids.
5.Bring to the boil over medium heat; boil, uncovered, for 5 minutes or until sauce has reduced to ¾ cup. Drizzle lamb with sauce.

We used a shiraz-style wine in this recipe.
